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.

This dominates the skyline in Washington and is such an iconic building. Worth a visit but we didn’t go in just from the steps and the pond you get a sense of the greatness.

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.

Enjoyed our visit to the Capitol!!! We enjoyed lunch after our tour of the Capitol! Book a tour with your congressman before you come.

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.
