Talk about a wet shower...the main dome was under construction, which detracted from our whole trip. As such, we did not get any money shots with the capital dome as a backdrop. The display of the evolution of the construction of DC should not be missed! Was this review helpful? Please let me know by clicking on the button below.... More

Loved seeing Ronald Reagan's statue and all of the other cool dignitaries. I ran up and down all of the steps for exercise.

We were very disappointed that work was being done on the dome. We were hoping it was going to be finished. But it was still interesting to see it. Would of liked to have taking a tour but could not fit it in.
