As an American and a Voter, it was indeed a pleasure to visit the House as an advocate for the commercial real estate industry. Well received in each meeting by receptive staff and congressional delegates who listened intently, took notes, discussed issues and were most welcoming. Good photo ops too. Walking through two of the 3 House Office Buildings connected... More

I recommend you visit your local Congressional office and get gallery passes for your visit to the Hill. This allows you access to sit in on both the House and Senate side floor and also give you easy access to walk around and enjoy architecture and art.

Best possible way to see this is behind the scenes with a private tour from your senators office. However, you will need to make the reservations in advance. We were lucky enough to spend several hours with Todd Truesdale from Senator Lindsay Grahams office. He was knowledgeable and spent hours showing just the 2 of us the sights. We've traveled... More

We have gone about 5 times in our life time. I am so happy we had the tour in the year 1973. and 4 more times. Every time we gone the tour gets short of viewing, Which I do understand. That's why you must see our Senate and House Office Building. It's just lovely

There's so much to see in DC, and this should be one of them. I had a great time walking around a fair bit of DC and loved the fact that so much of it you can do for free.

Being able to actually go into the Senate Chambers and the House Chambers is an honor and is a testament to open and free democracy. I wonder is anyone can just go and see the North Korean government in action?.

Three office buildings on each side of the Capitol - Senate to the north; House to the south - house the 100 Senators and 435 Representatives who write the laws of the land. Stop by your Rep's office, as well as those of your 2 Senators, and say hello to the cheery staffers who help shape the country. Special attention... More
