Magnificent building (and you see so much more than the Capitol) with fascinating contents and history.

and Constitution are on display here. Good shop, too. Also they run free showing of the Oscar-nominated shorts every year right before the Oscars.

The LoC is a fantastic place to visit. We set up a tour through out congressman's office prior to visiting DC. Tour guide was great. The library is very ornate and filled with all sorts of literary treasures. We especially enjoyed seeing the Gutenburg Bible. There were a couple of special displays as well. Very young children might not appreciate this tour as much as older children, teens and adults. Definitely worth your time! FREE!

Worth a visit. Try to get a tour. We had a great guide who told lots of stories about renovations.

We missed our timed tickets for the Capitol Building tour and took the tour of the LoC by default. What a treat! Informative view of an extraordinary building, and a fascinating perspective on the makings of America. Take the free docent-led tour, or you'll miss half of what you're looking at!
