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.

The Architect of the Capitol is working on a 2-year restoration project of the Capitol Dome that requires scaffolding to surround the Dome. Note: Due to construction, the Rotunda will be closed to tours from Saturday, July 25, 2015, until Monday, September 8, 2015. You can find more information from the Architect of the Capitol.
