Tours and Tickets

Welcome to our nation’s capital! There are many fascinating places to see during your visit. Please consider attending some of the historical sites our city has to offer, which we have listed below. Please be aware that our office is only able to request tours at a few select locations. Information on additional points of interest may be found below. 
 

If you wish to request our help in scheduling a tour please fill out our online form here. Please be aware that we are only able to book tours of the Capitol, White House, Bureau of Engraving and Printing and the FBI Center. We may assist you with booking a tour of the Library of Congress if your group has ten people or more.

U.S. Capitol

We are pleased to offer tours of the U.S. Capitol to our constituents. Please allow advance notice as consideration for our staff. Tours can also be arranged directly through the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center using an online reservation system.

 

The White House

You can request a White House tour up to 60 days from today’s date. Please be mindful that a request submitted through our congressional office does not automatically guarantee admittance but simply allows the White House to view the appropriate information before finally determining the status of the tour.
 
Once you submit your information through our online form, we will then process that information, submit a tour on your behalf and you will receive an RSVP link from the White House where you will enter your guest information through a secured link.
 
Please be sure to submit guest information correctly because once the form is submitted, our office will not have access to modify any dates or guest information. The White House will notify you of the status of your tour within 2-3 weeks of the requested tour date.

*The White House and Capitol will receive an influx of tour requests during the Spring and Summer months. Nearly 100,000 requests are submitted per month yet only about 5% of those requests are granted. Please keep this in mind and avoid booking any expensive trips or vacations based on a tour submission.

*The White House does not conduct tours on Sunday’s or Monday’s. Tours are conducted Tuesday-Saturday. 

 

Library of Congress

Our office is only able to schedule tours for groups of ten people or more. Constituents who wish to visit the Library of Congress in smaller groups are encouraged to visit their website for more information. 

 

Bureau of Engraving and Printing

Tours can be scheduled by our office to guarantee a reserved tour at 8:15 AM, or 8:45 AM. They also offer unreserved public tours every 15 minutes. Tickets must be picked up on the morning of the tour; doors open at 8 AM.

 

FBI Education Center

The FBI Education Center offers public tours Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. The Education Center is slated to open in Mid-July yet the system will open in early April.
