Trained members of my staff conduct Capitol tours Monday through Friday. These tours provide an overview of important historical, artistic, and architectural features of the Capitol building. Highlights of the tour include visits to the Old Supreme Court Chamber, the Capitol Rotunda, and the National Statuary Hall. If the Senate is in session on the day of your tours and you wish to view the Senate debates, you may request Senate gallery passes at the conclusion of your tour.

The Library of Congress offers docent-led tours of the historic Thomas Jefferson Building.

Professionally trained docents tell the story of the Library-America's oldest cultural institution-by talking about the history, collections (including the Gutenberg Bible), and the services the Library provides to Congress and the nation.
