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.

A FREE tour of the Congress which you cannot go wrong with. This is a guided tour and they give you headsets so you can hear the tour guide. Very informative and a quick lesson in history. There is so much you learn when you...More
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.

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 session schedules are available on the US Senate web site), and by all means, reserve well in advance (you can pick up your pass at your Senator's office the day before). NO photography is permitted in the chamber.
