FAQs

  • How much time should I allow for my visit?

    It's generally a good idea to allocate a minimum of an hour and a half for your tour of the U.S. Capitol and visit to the Capitol Visitor Center. The latter offers many opportunities to learn about the building as well as the history of Congress. There are also two gift shops and a large restaurant.
  • Are the tours offered in languages other than English?

    At the present time, all U.S. Capitol tours are given in English by experienced guides. However, listening devices for the orientation film along with Exhibition Hall displays are available in several different languages, including French, Spanish, German, Mandarin, and Japanese.
