The United States Capitol - Beginning on May 25th, U.S. Capitol tours may be self-scheduled via this link: https://www.visitthecapitol.gov/. These U.S. Capitol tours are professionally done through historians who carefully guide you through some of the most historic rooms in the United States Capitol. All visitors to the Capitol are required to go through security screening. Please review the prohibited items list before you arrive via this link: https://www.visitthecapitol.gov/plan-visit/prohibited-items. Groups of more than 15 people are required to reserve a U.S. Capitol tour through this website. Due to the high volume of requests, we strongly suggest that all U.S. Capitol tour requests be submitted at least 3 months in advance prior to the requested tour date for consideration.
Congressman Franklin’s office also provides staff-led tours of the U.S. Capitol on a limited basis, which can be scheduled using the form below. Staff-led tours can only accommodate groups of less than 15 people. Due to the high volume of staff-led tour requests, there is a 3 month waitlist. It may be faster to reserve a U.S. Capitol tour through the official Capitol Visitor’s center using the link above.
The White House
Due to the high volume of White House tour requests, all requests must be submitted at least 3-6 months in advance prior to the requested tour date for consideration. An extremely limited number of requests will be honored by the White House, therefore it is critical for each individual within a tour group to complete the below tour request form as far in advance as possible.
Currently, the White House is offering a small amount of public tours from 8:00am – 12:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, excluding federal holidays or unless otherwise noted.
As of June 6th, all other federal office buildings remain closed to the public, including the FBI and the U.S. Bureau of Engraving & Printing.
Smithsonian Museums and National Monuments remain open, which may be self-scheduled using the links below.
If you and your family are requesting a White House or U.S. Capitol tour, please submit your tour request form below.
We will update the website as additional information becomes available.
