Owner description: The Capitol is among the most architecturally impressive and symbolically important buildings in the world. The Senate and the House of Representatives have met here for more than two centuries. Begun in 1793, the Capitol has been built, burnt, rebuilt, extended, and restored; today, it stands as a monument not only to its builders but also to the American people and their government.

We used to be able to go inside. There was a lot of garbage in the reflecting pool out front. What has happened? My son was looking forward to seeing the rotunda.

Very informative and awesome experience! Kids really enjoyed the tour. I highly recommend booking your tour in advance through your local representative. This greatly helped in getting us into the Capitol quickly without having to wait in long lines.

I had a nice tour of the Capitol. OUr tour guide was excellent. He clearly was a history buff-- not someone who just memorized a script. It's a beautiful and historical building, and it's nice that it's open to the public.

Chanced walk up entry and only queued for about 20 mins. Recommend getting there before 11am. Queues did increase significantly by time we were leaving. Amazing building. Impressive from outside. Outstanding inside. So much like the best buildings in Rome. Audio on tour was best in Washington. Suitable for entire family. Got some fantastic photos.
