Thank you for your interest in visiting our nation’s Capital. Due to ongoing concerns with COVID-19, many public tours have been suspended until further notice. If you are trying to schedule a tour for 2021, please see below for additional information:
Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, the Capital complex has been closed to visitors since March 2020. It is unknown as to when the Capital complex will reopen and tours will resume. Out of an abundance of caution, our office will not be scheduling public or staff-led Capitol tours until our office receives further guidance from the House and Senate Sergeants at Arms, Capitol Attending Physician and D.C. Metropolitan Police. Our office will notify constituents when the Capitol complex reopens and tours resume.
The White House Visitors Office has temporarily suspended all tours until further notice, and our office is unable to process White House tour requests for constituents. Unfortunately, we do not yet know when the White House Visitors Office will resume tour operations.
The Bureau of Engraving and Printing, and Federal Bureau of Investigation, have issued similar guidelines and have temporally suspended tours until further notice. Due to this suspension, our office is unable to arrange or schedule these tours at this time.
While tours of the Capitol, White House, BEP, and FBI remain closed at this time, some Smithsonian museums are beginning the reopening process. During your visit to Washington D.C., you may be interested in visiting one or more of these museums. All locations will reopen with added health and safety measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Visitors will need to reserve free timed-entry passes for all locations. For more information about which locations are open and how to reserve the passes, please visit the Smithsonian website here.
