Capitol tours are available to the general public Monday – Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Tours will be booked 20 minutes or 50 minutes after the hour.
Advance reservations are required for all tour participants. Please note that school groups cannot exceed 50 persons and all other groups are limited to 15 persons.
Capitol Visitor Services will also accept reservations and constituents are now able to reserve their own tours directly through the CVC.
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. Tours will be monitored by Capitol Visitor Services so that modifications can be made if recommended by the Office of the Attending Physician.
The details of what a full reopening of the Capitol Visitor Center would look like are still being worked out. Please continue to visit this site for additional updates as we get them. Thank you.
