Capitol & White House Tours
Your Member of Congress can help you arrange tickets to tour the White House, Capitol and other attractions in Washington D.C. Most members of Congress have an online form to make such a request - each Member’s website is different and some are easier to navigate than others, but usually the form is located in a drop-down menu under something like Constituent Services, Visiting Washington DC, Tour Requests, etc. You can also call the Member’s D.C. office and their staff will assist you. If you do not know your Member of Congress you can look up your Representative using the Find Your Representative tool at the top right corner of www.house.gov, and your Senators using the Find Your Senators tool in the top left corner of www.senate.gov.
Please be aware that White House tours must be requested no less than 21 days in advance. All guests 18 years of age or older will be required to present a valid, government-issued photo identification. More information is available here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/about-the-white-house/tours-events/
Advance reservations to visit the Capitol are recommended, but not required. Your Member of Congress will often arrange staff-led tours for their constituents, but same day passes for self-guided tours are available at the Capitol Visitors Center on a first-come first-served basis.
