The United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., is a symbol of the American people and their government, the meeting place of the nation’s legislature. The Capitol also houses an important collection of American art, and it is an architectural achievement in its own right. It is a working office building as well as a tourist attraction visited by millions every year.
SIGHTS WE COVER ON THE CAPITOL TOUR:
Guided tours of the historic Capitol begin at one of the Capitol Visitor Center’s orientation theaters with a 13-minute film, “Out of Many, One,” which will take you on a journey through our country’s struggle to establish the world’s first truly representative democracy and introduce you to the magnificent building that houses our Congress. Once inside the historic Capitol, visitors will see the Crypt, the Rotunda, and National Statuary Hall. All tours begin and end at the Capitol Visitor Center.
This highly engaging National Mall tour will take you through the heart of the Mall, entertaining you and your family with stories, hidden secrets, and historical information.

The memorials tell about the lives of men and women from America’s past and present and our guides will share with you stories – from founding father George Washington to Rosie the Riveter during WWII.
