Tours and Tickets

Please Note: All tours for the Capitol, Federal Bureau of Investigations, Supreme Court, and Bureau of Engraving and Printing have been closed until further notice. If you are hoping to visit these locations in the next few months, we recommend you submit a tour request below. When our office learns more about when we are able to book a tour for you, we will reach out to you.

White House tours have resumed at limited capacity. White House Tours are now hosted two days a week instead of five, on Friday and Saturday, from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM. The number of guests has been limited to 18% of normal capacity.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause you, and we look forward to welcoming you to our Nation’s Capital in the future. As news develops on the Coronavirus, our office will be sending more emails to keep you up to date. If you or someone you know would be interested in getting these regular updates please sign up for our e-newsletter. 


All tickets are provided to constituents on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the large number of visitors, please request them as early as possible in order to maximize your chances. For information on sightseeing and attractions, please visit the Washington, DC Tourism Information page.

The tickets of federal buildings that our office can request are: the United States Capitol, White House, Library of Congress, Federal Bureau of Investigations, and Bureau of Engraving and Printing 

Please Note: Obtaining a White House tour can be very difficult. Acceptance or denial of a tour is a decision made exclusively by the White House. It is very important to follow the below guidelines for your application to be considered.

The following are policies determined by the White House for those requesting tours through Congressional Offices:
  • Tours must be requested at least three weeks in advance and we strongly encourage tour requests be submitted at least eight weeks in advance. 
  • Tours are only available Tuesday through Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and Fridays and Saturdays 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
