Capitol Tours

altThe U.S. Capitol is open six days a week, except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.  Since September 11, 2001, the Capitol has made a series of necessary changes in visitation procedures.  We would like to maintain open access to the Capitol, while balancing the requirement to ensure safety and security at all times.  The Capitol will be open to the public for tours from  9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Please keep in mind that when visiting the Capitol Building, certain items will be prohibited.  To schedule a tour of the Capitol please call Michael Montini in my office at least seven days in advance at (202)-225-3661 .  You can also fill out this form.
