About United States Capitol, Washington D. C.

The United States Capitol Building is where the legislature of the country meets and conducts its affairs. The lovely domed structure isn’t just a pretty sight; it stands as a symbol of the country in many ways.

The monument is located at Capitol Hill and is a wonderful example of official architecture that is both impressive as well as beautiful. Tourists flock to this place not just because of its political importance but due to its cultural significance as well. There is a beautiful fresco painted on the interior of the capitol’s dome that is certainly worth seeing. The interiors are intricately carved and art from the world over graces its walls. Another interesting thing to see here is the National Statuary Hall where there are two statues from each of the fifty states of America. Some of the greatest personalities from the country have been honoured here. A visit to the US Capitol is a must while travelling to Washington D.C.

  • Ok now, my family went to DC for a vacation. We had everything planned out and for the most part, went well and was very fun. I believe it was the second day we were going to the capitol. We had a tour scheduled with other people in my state. Long story short, we waited a couple hours for a tour. Things were mixed up BADLY. Eventually, things were worked out, and the tour was interesting. I wouldn't say it was surely worth it, but definitely fun. D.C. Is a great place for a vacation, to investigate out nation's history and have loads of fun.

  • If I were building my own legislative branch building to house the upper and lower houses of the most powerful nation on earth, I couldn't have done a better job myself! Seriously, this - along with the White House and the U.S. Supreme Court building, are impressive in the truest sense. Here, the richness of our legislative history is seen from every state and epoch since our beginning. I will load photos once I return to a computer - iPhone 6+ is great but this deserved more. You're only cheating yourself if you don't visit.

  • While I don't always like or agree with the policies that come out of this building, it is magical and impressive. What a piece of art. The history is just amazing. Being able to stand there was such an honor and really makes me proud to be an American. I cannot wait to visit again some day with my family.

  • I highly recommend everyone visit once in their life. The details of the architecture and artwork will leave you in awe... and I suppose it's also important to see where the decisions impacting the country are made, if you're into that kind of thing... Side note: Be sure to visit the Roosevelt memorial while in Washington - it will inspire you to be a better human being.

  • My family and I booked a personal tour with our state's congressman. His staff set up a tour and my wife and two kiddos had an amazing walk through of the capital. His interns were amazing. They spent about 4 hours walking us around before we were pretty much spent. We had not eaten before the tour and the tour started at noon. So with only breakfast that morning by 4 we needed food. All of the cafe shops in the buildings close at 2:30. On top of that, the vending spots do not take cash! Are you kidding me?? So this was another factor in the cut off of our tour. Keep in mind we cut the tour short not them. I feel certain we walked over four miles based on my garmin watch. I would Highly recommend calling your congressman or woman before you travel to DC and sweet that up. You will learn a lot and be moved at the history behind our nation and our capital.
