“See our Congress in action”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

Get in touch with your elected officials to let them know you are planning a visit to see the our government in action up close and personal. The surrounding area is all very walkable and there is much to see on the Mall after your visit to Capitol Hill.

“Must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015

It's a very impressive building and it's a really cool tour. I would have ranked it as a 4 except you can't come to DC and not see this building and go visit the chambers of the House of Representatives.. Great place

Obviously a must do when in Washington. To see it in real life after seeing it on TV for years and years was amazing.
