Adding or removing information will suspend your request. Tickets are available by lottery, and we cannot guarantee that tickets for a particular date will be available.
U.S. Capitol Tours:
Tours of the U.S. Capitol do not require that visitors undego a background check. Tickets are available for reservation on a first-come first-served basis through my office. Although recommended, reservations are not required to visit the U.S. Capitol, and tickets may be acquired on a walk-up basis through the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center. This means that although my office may not have tickets available for reservation on a desired date, you should still be able to tour the Capitol as long as crowds remain manageable.
