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.

  • This was my second visit to Washington, DC and i was lucky enough that the restoration of the US Capitol was done after more than 3 years of work! Very beautiful building. On my first visiting, I did the tour inside the US Capitol, it was very informative and interesting. Totally recommended.

  • It was greatly informative! I've only learned about the US from my textbooks, but the tours really bring it to another level! I'm not a citizen and I don't stay there so unfortunately I can't contact any Rep. or anything, so I guess that was the only downside. Wait I think that's not the only one. There was just too many people. I went on Black Friday, but still the crowds were ridiculous. The tour was too rushed, and we missed some pretty awesome statues and paintings. That's my only complaint. Although, if you do ask me, I'll definitely come back to visit again. Once is never enough! :)

  • A Brief History of United States packed into a very informative 45 minute tour of the Capitol. Starts off with a movie before the tour begins. The tour guides are extremely thorough and know pretty much everything there is to know about every statue and painting. The Library of Congress is adjacent to the Capitol and connected by an underground passage. Best to visit it after the tour.

  • Do yourself a favor and do some footwork before coming here. Contact your representative in Congress for a staff tour. I feel like it was much more informative and intimate than those large group tours, plus IT'S FREE. An added bonus: if your Rep is in a leadership role, you get to see some nifty stuff like their extra offices. Steve Scalise is the Majority Whip, so we got to see the Lincoln Room (complete with an escape tunnel!). One thing though: if you're on a private tour, make sure you get pictures of the Rotunda and Statuary Hall BEFORE you go back downstairs to the House/Senate galleries. We missed out on taking photos of one of our state's statues and didn't want to go through the trouble of getting on a tour group to do it. After that, go spend the day watching the House and/or Senate in action. If you're lucky, they'll all be there voting on a measure. Got to watch John McCain speak, and was 30-odd feet away from Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, so it was a really great experience.

  • Such an impressive site ... hard to really appreciate its sheer size without seeing in person. Definitely worth the tour ... especially if you're able to see inside chambers.
