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.

  • The tour around the place was really good and very historical. Our guide was a very good one. He stated all of the states statues and made it a priority to remember where everyone in our group came from so that he could point out their statues to them. The history in there was very fascinating, but you couldn’t see much of the capitol if you didn’t have a tour. But it was relatively easy to get one once you got past security, and the rest was very amazing.

  • Great tour with lots of fascinating facts and stories. Being there during the work day is a little like being in Hollywood as you'll likely spot famous Congress members if you keep an eye out for them. We had one stop our group to ask where we were from and then filled us in on his background. It was nice to see him in his "natural habitat". If you enjoy architecture, the building can't be missed. Most people don't realize how much has changed in the construction/reconstruction of the dome over time.

  • Seldom seen or appreciated is the original Supreme Court in the basement of the Capitol. When you get your tour, work with your local state legislator to get a behind the scenes view of the Capitol and you will not be disappointed. Either arrange this in advance before your trip to DC (preferred ), or stop by their respective office while in DC. Most legislators are happy to meet their constituents.

  • Nice place to visit. You can take a lot of good/cool pictures. Good opportunity to discuss some facts and history with your family (specially with your kids)..Super Labor Day weekend concert by the National Symphony Orchestra on the west lawn of the Capitol. Good security work by the Police and the Park Service to keep the concert safe for everyone.

  • We went there on Martin Luther King Day. Not many people were there. You can make reservation online or go early in the morning to get same day pass. According to office website, same day pass is limited so if you do not have reservations, you probably want to get up early. The capitol opens on 8:30 am. The whole visit takes about 1.5 hours. They have free tour guide, I really like this! The inside of the capitol is very beautiful, you won't regret to visit there.
