FAQs

  • What will I see on a tour of the U.S. Capitol?

    First, you will see a short film that covers America’s long road to bringing a representative democracy to fruition. It also features an introduction to the U.S. Capitol building where Congress does the people’s business. The tour itself, which begins and ends at the Capitol Visitor Center, includes the Rotunda, National Statuary Hall, and Crypt.

    There are several items that are not permitted, such as backpacks, luggage, and daypacks that are bigger than 18" wide x 14" high x 8.5" deep. Other things not allowed are food, beverages (even water), aerosol containers, and weapons like knives, guns, razors, and box cutters.
