Visiting Washington and Touring the Capitol
Are you a 19th District resident and planning a trip to Washington to see some of our nation’s monuments? We would love to meet you. So don’t be a stranger and let us know you’re coming our way. While the schedule is often crazy and unpredictable down here, my dedicated staff will do everything they can to coordinate a time for us to meet. At the very least, we can provide tickets to some Washington, D.C. attractions, including a tour of the U.S. Capitol building. All tickets are free and are provided to constituents on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the large number of visitors, please request tours with as much advance notice as possible
*White House tours require at least three-months advance notice.
We have an easy to fill out form to schedule tours that can be found here.
