The Washington, D.C. office is available for questions you may have about a visit to our nation's capital and can place requests for advance Congressional tour tickets to many of D.C.'s popular attractions and historical landmarks. Tour ticket availability varies throughout the year, so please contact the Washington office with at least 8-12 weeks advance notice whenever possible.

The Washington, DC office can help request advance Congressional tour tickets for the following attractions:

U.S. Capitol
The White House
Bureau of Engraving & Printing
Library of Congress
Kennedy Center
FBI Education Center
Supreme Court

Tickets are provided by each tour site on a first come, first served basis. Please be aware that even with significant advanced notice, tour requests for these attractions often fill up quickly, especially during the peak tourist season of February through August. You may receive confirmation of tour availability on a rolling basis, and often times, right up until the date of your departure.

When you arrive in D.C., please feel free to stop by the office in the Longworth House Office Building (room 1401). The staff will be happy to provide you with a gallery pass to attend a session of the House of Representatives or Senate.
