The main part of this review is about the Russell Senate Office building which has a charm to its exterior design that's all we got to see but its well worth the wander around after looking at the Capitol building, worth a pit-stop.

The facilities are good and high security. Very different from what I had thought would exist. Somewhat like large commercial office buildings. I5 certainly gave insight to where interviews, etc were conducted for TV. I would not make a second visit.

It was great to visit the senate and see all the places inside. Would actually visit again as I was a bit rushed. Make sure you have something to eat before you go as you might be distracted if you are hungry.

Make sure to contact your rep. to get tickets or go to the Dirkin building to get tickets to BOTH houses. It is worth it. There is a lot of screening though. U cant bring anything .

Overall, it was nice having the contact at the Senate building. She got us the tour and we were able to accomplish it with ease. I was disappointed we were not able to get into the White House.

We had to meet here to get our White House passes. While at the office, Diane Black popped out. She is so nice. Took pics with us. And we ended up with a private tour!

Yes. You must obtain a Senate chamber pass from one of your Senators, for a specific date (and may have a designated entry time as well). First, make sure the Senate is in session on the day you plan to observe (Senate... More
