Visiting Washington

COVID-19 (coronavirus) Update

The Capitol Visitor Center will be closed for tours beginning Thursday, March 12, at 4:30 p.m. All tours are canceled. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Capitol Visitor Center at a future date.

Are you planning a visit to Washington, DC? While you are in Washington, DC, I encourage you and your family to stop by my office. Whether you're coming on a short business trip, or an extended family vacation, my office can help you make arrangements for some of the more popular Federal attractions in our Nation's Capital.

Tour Requests

We are able to help you reserve tours to the White House, the U.S. Capitol, the Library of Congress, the Kennedy Center, the Supreme Court, and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. You may place an online tour request. These tours are an excellent way to see all that the nation's capital has to offer and all of these tours are of no charge to you. All tickets are provided to my constituents on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the large number of visitors, please request them as early as possible in order to maximize your chances.

All White House tours must be submitted at least 21 days prior to the tour. Since demand for White House tours is high and space is limited, the White House uses an automated first-come, first-serve system.  Despite early requests, tickets still are typically fairly difficult to obtain.  Although our office is glad to submit a request on your behalf, there is no guarantee that you will be selected and obtain a tour of the White House. Please know that our office has no control over the selection process the White House uses for tours.  If it were up to us, our constituents would be given preference.
