Full description
Meet your guide and discover the U.S. Capitol Building on a 1-hour guided tour. The Capitol Building on Washington DC's Capitol Hill is recognized across the world as one of the United States’ most prominent icons of democracy and a grand symbol of the country’s government.

Upon arrival, admire the striking white dome that acts as the focal point to the building. Once inside, discover both a working legislative building and national monument that welcomes thousands of visitors every year.

A visit to the Capitol would not be complete without a tour of the Capitol Grounds, a 270-acre landscaped park originally designed by Frederick Law Olmsted. The landscape architect is also renowned for his design of New York’s Central Park.

In the grounds, see more than 100 species of trees, ornamental shrubs, and colorful flowers. Visit the Bartholdi Fountain, the Capitol Reflecting Pool, and the Neptune Fountain. The Capitol Grounds are also the setting for monuments and memorials to Ulysses S. Grant, James Garfield, and Robert Taft. Take a moment of quiet reflection at the Summerhouse.
