If if you don't go in via the Visitor Center on the north side, and just wander around, every foto you snap should be wonderful as it is such an iconic site. Arrange ahead of time with your cong. rep. for a full visit.

We loved the tour of the Capitol Building. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly and the architecture and design of the building is incredible. You can take a tunnel over to the Library of Congress and see all the books there. They have a great Civil War section and Jefferson's book collection beyond that. Get there early if you are getting tickets as a walk up.

A visit to the Capitol is a must. Make sure you book a tour in advance but if, like us, you don't there are limited walk up passes. Our tour guide was amazing, so knowledgeable and really made our day.
For international visitors you can get a pass to the House of Representatives from the information counter on the left after you enter.

Capital Hill is always interesting! Visited with Missouri Representatives and Senators. Always nice to see how they are working for us. We had several talking points and everyone seemed to understand and promised support.

We arrived at sunset and took the most beautiful photos. It was very serene to sit by the pond and watch the people play games, the ducks go by and the joggers go by. The security members also were visable but not overwhelming. It appeared well protected.
