Truly inspiring to gaze upon this Jeffersonian construct and think of the breadth of decisions and actions that have taken place here that have shaped human history, both bad and good, mundane and profound. Fantastic tours- highly recommend them. Go minimal... faster security check. And...More

A guided tour - takes you to the dome, some of the chambers in the Capitol including the Speakers. Very huge. Expect airport level security checks; at least!

You can take a tour but just a walk around the capital building is worth it. Absolutely beautiful building in pictures......better in person.

We came here for a Buddy Walk and Summit. We met with Congressmen and Senators to advocate for the rights of those with D'S. It was an incredible experience and empowering.

We were able to arrange a private tour through Austin Scott of Georgia's office. The girl that led us was great, informative and great with my grandson, too. So much to see and learn.
