Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Due to a special event taking place in the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, areas regularly included in the tour of the Capitol, such as the Rotunda and National Statuary Hall, will not be available for tours until the conclusion of the event at approximately 12:30 p.m. The Capitol Visitor Center will remain open throughout the day, and guide-led opportunities in the Capitol Visitor Center will be available during the event.

Education

Whether you're a student, teacher or family, visiting the Capitol is a great way to explore the roots of our country's government through stories and hands-on activities.

Visitors can choose from a variety of lessons about Congress and the Capitol that go beyond the traditional Capitol tour.  The Capitol Visitor Center offers students and teachers a wide range of resources, such as classroom research projects, lesson plans, and even activity sheets to use on your visit.
