We almost missed this! we were taking pictures in front of Capital Hill didn't know we can actually visit the place. ( didn't do any homework as this is the last minute decision to visit DC) While we were walking towards the back of the building trying to find Supreme Court we spotted the visitor center and just walked in for some nice cool air as the weather is too hot to stay outdoor. Well, am I glad that there were so much to see in there! Since we are "walk-in" we are required to get the special passes which right on the left counter and the next minute we were in the line for an IMAX for the introduction ( something like that, lol) the next thing is a tour guide from the Hill walking us with other visitors to the Rotunda, the Crypt and Statuary Hall. After this tour we were told there is a tunnel to Library of Congress, this is a beautiful building, the architecture, the lighting made you wanted to stay there. There is a second floor which can go to a small section of third floor for "view the reading room". Looking down to the reading room, it is really beautiful! After that, we have to walk to the other building ( forgot the name) to get a special pass to get in to the House Gallery. It was really awesome as I get to sit inside the Gallery, only on the top sections. In order to go to the floor level, I have to apply a pass from my district senator, take 6 months. If would be the same procedure if anyone wanted to visit the White House. So, never mind.. For the Supreme Court, it was under renovation, we didn't bother to walk over.
