If you're lucky, like we were, you can get a special tour through your representative's or senator's office (or be related to your tour guide and get the same advantage). You then can get 'skip the line' privileges, where you don't have to go with a big group. Senators and Representatives' offices have a certain number of passes available for visiting constituents, so be sure to try to stop by their offices or contact them ahead of time (preferable). There are so many extraordinary things to see--original documents, gorgeous architecture, beautiful rooms, that you shouldn't miss it (unless you have very small children who might not appreciate it as much as older teens).
