Tours and Tickets
All U.S. Capitol tours have been suspended and the House office buildings have been closed to most visitors by the Sergeant at Arms as of March 12th in light of the coronavirus outbreak. For more information you can check the Capitol Visitor Center’s website and subscribe to my newsletter for regular updates.
All tickets are provided to constituents on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the large number of visitors, please request them as early as possible in order to maximize your chances. For information on sightseeing and attractions, please visit the Washington, DC Tourism Information page.
Important Information for those seeking White House Tours:
White House tours are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Public tours are typically scheduled Tuesday through Saturday. Requests can be submitted up to three months in advance and no less than 21 days in advance. You are encouraged to submit your request as early as possible as a limited number of spaces are available, particularly for dates during peak tourism season such as March-April and December. To submit your tour request we will need detailed information such as: name, birth date, place of birth, and social security number. Please be prepared to provide this information for members of your tour party when we respond to your request.
Please note that White House tour availability is extremely limited, and scheduling is likely to be affected by security concerns as well as scheduled events. The White House does not confirm or deny requests until about two weeks prior to the requested tour date.
