When we visited the White House Christmas tree side, we can’t help noticing this beautiful building. We entered the lawb and able to walk on the garden and also visited the memorial in front. Such a remarkable infrastructure indeed!
Every time I passed by this building, I wished I could visit and see what's inside. For me, it looked like a European Palace, not an Office building!
Similar to what I observed during my earlier visit, people going inside are all in their business...More
This monumental building is in Pennsylvania Avenue a few doors from the White House. I was impressed by its size and architecture which sits well with other buildings in the area. . Many White House administrative staff work here.
We had seen this building a few times while walking near the White House. We finally found out that it was the Eisenhower Executive Office Building when we were on our way to the Renwick Gallery. This building is impressive both in it's immense size...More

I don't believe the building is open to the public to tour as it is a working office building. Your best bet would be if you knew someone that works there/has access to the building to give you a tour. With that you wouldn't need advanced approval. You could also try sending a request to your local state representative (similar to how you would request approval to visit the White House) to see if s/he is able to help. If you go that route, I would recommend sending your request months in advance.
