We are pleased to announce that starting on Wednesday, May 25, the public may reserve tours directly through the Capitol Visitor Center website below. The decision to reinstate limited tours has been made in coordination with Congressional Leadership, the U.S. Capitol Police Board, the Attending Physician, Capitol Visitor Services, and the U.S. Capitol Police.
Reservations are required for all staff-led tours, and are available Monday through Friday from 10:10 AM-1:40PM
If you would like a staff-led tour, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page. Due to limited availability we ask that you provide multiple dates you are able to tour.
White House Tours
Public White House tours will resume on Friday, April 15, 2022, and will initially be available from 8:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Fridays and Saturdays, excluding Federal holidays or unless otherwise noted. All White House tours are free of charge and scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis, with the tour schedule subject to change based on inclement weather or official use.
