United States District of Columbia Washington

United States Capitol

The impressive building in Washington, DC, where the legislative branch of the US government meets and decides on laws and policies.

Tips from the community

Visitors can tour the Capitol building and see the impressive architecture and artwork, including the famous dome and the Statuary Hall. Tours are free and can be reserved online or through your Member of Congress, but they fill up quickly, so it's recommended to book in advance. Additionally, families can explore the surrounding Capitol Hill neighborhood, which is home to historic sites, charming shops, and delicious restaurants.

  • Kid Friendly Things to do in Washington DC

    chiefseeker (Jody Vandergriff)
    Planning a family trip to Washington D.C. with your kids? Look no further than this list of kid-friendly things to do in the city. I took my 10-year-old son to DC for a memorable trip in November 2019, and it was both a fun and educational experience for both of us. From incredible museums to the grandeur of the National Mall, there is no shortage of activities to keep children entertained and engaged in learning. Here are our favorite spots from our trip. Reach out to your representative in Congress up to 6 months in advance for free tickets to many of the top sights as well as special access. Book as many popular sites sell out quickly!
