This is kind of like being in Orlando when it’s raining. You know it’s not going to be very good, but you have to do to Disney World. While no visit to Washington would be complete without visiting the capitol, you don’t get to see much at all. The tour consists of the recently completed Visitor Center, the old house chamber and the rotunda. It’s about 45 minutes from start to finish, including a 10-minute video presentation. It’s easy to get to and well organized. There are a few moderately interesting exhibits and, of course, two gift shops. The tour itself can be slightly more or less interesting based on the enthusiasm of your guide. As for my guide… let’s just say that the thrill of being in the U.S. Capitol is gone. There is a tunnel from the Visitor Center to the Library of Congress. That’s a nice way to see the Library, which is far more interesting than the Capitol. Also, the cafeteria is good.
