I've been here 3 times now and never get bored of the history and grandeur of the building. Bit annoying when I asked a question on the tour about the whispering gallery and the tour scoffed at me that it wasn't true - when actually...More
We were given tickets to the house and senate chambers from our congresswoman. They were included with our Capitol tour tickets.
Unfortunately, the senate was closed, but we did get to see Texas congressman Gohmert on the floor of the house. Really interesting place to...More

The facilities are good and high security. Very different from what I had thought would exist. Somewhat like large commercial office buildings. I5 certainly gave insight to where interviews, etc were conducted for TV. I would not make a second visit.

Yes. You must obtain a Senate chamber pass from one of your Senators, for a specific date (and may have a designated entry time as well). First, make sure the Senate is in session on the day you plan to observe (Senate session schedules are available on the US Senate web site), and by all means, reserve well in advance (you can pick up your pass at your Senator's office the day before). NO photography is permitted in the chamber.
