If you are traveling to Washington, D.C. for vacation, you really should visit the U.S. Capitol and see history first hand. Make sure you book a tour so you will know the historic events that have taken place inside and the many important decisions that have been made over the course of history. The tour can go from 60 to 90 minutes. You will each be given a headset so you can hear what your guide is saying. Once inside, you may want to spend time appreciating the architecture and putting attention to every detail that defines this building. Security is tight going into the building, so it’s best that you not bring too much with you. After you are done inside, walk around the building and enjoy the grand architecture.
This place offers a fantastic tour of one of our country's most iconic buildings. They provide an informational film that covers the history of the of the building before you take a walking tour of the building. Starting with the rotunda under the dome. They have a series of paintings and murals associated with the history of the United States. You then travel to "Whisper Room" where acoustics allow an individual to here talk across the room with clarity. The last place you get to visit is the crypt where you can see a marker representing the true center of Washington DC. Overall this is a interesting fact-filled trip that I recommend for all visitors to Washington.
This tour was fascinating. The architecture was absolutely incredible, the tour was free, and it was very in-depth. They started out with an informational presentation, which sparked my interest even more, and then we went to an upper level. At the upper level, they gave us headsets so we could hear our tour guide through her microphone, and then we walked throughout the building. There was lots of interesting history about the Capitol's architecture, there was history on the Supreme Court, and there was history about Capitol affairs. There are a myriad of statues throughout the building, and you get to find the history about that, too. And though not all of it was allowed to be photographed, most of it was and they specifically encouraged pictures.
The United States Capitol Building is a fantastic place to visit and explore. I was pleasantly surprised several days ago when I visited. I got to visit the House of Representatives and witness the daily prayer. It's surreal visiting the building that so many influential people have walked and worked in. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining. And the gift shops had plenty of American made products that I had a hard time choosing between.
We took the tunnel from the Library of Congress over to the Capital Building. Ended up arriving at the Capital Building right in time to start a tour. They played a nice 15-20 minute video on the history of the Capital Building and then you get to go up into the dome and view some of the other rooms. This is some amazing history and architecture. The tour took about an hour and was well worth it. The tour is free but you do need to get timed tickets. Additionally the cafeteria in the Capital Building is reasonably priced and has very good food. We enjoyed our lunch here too! Definitely a recommended stop for any trip to DC.
