Located in the heart of the Nation's Capital, the BEP's Washington, DC Tour and Visitor Center is a great place to learn all about U.S. paper currency.  You can see millions of dollars being printed as you walk along the gallery overlooking the production floor!  The free 40-minute experience includes an introductory film and gallery tour of the production process.

The tour highlights the historic events that led up to the establishment of the national cultural center that is also our nation's living memorial to President John F. Kennedy, and includes an interactive exhibit on his life and presidency. Visitors also learn about the works of art given to the Center, such as Robert Berks's bust of President Kennedy, Willy Weber's Apollo X, and the stunning Israeli Lounge. If you group is smaller than 10 people there is no need to make a reservation.  The Kennedy center offers walk-up tours every 10 minutes, Monday-Friday from 10:00 AM-5:00 PM or on Weekends 10:00 AM-1:00 PM.

The Library of Congress offers hour-long, fully accessible docent-led tours of the historic Thomas Jefferson Building. The tour includes discussion of the building's symbolic art and architecture and the history and work of the nation's oldest federal cultural institution.

The Supreme Court Building was designed by Cass Gilbert and built from 1931 to 1935.  The Court first sat in the building on Monday, October 7, 1935.  The building, majestic in size and rich in ornamentation, serves as both home to the Court and the manifest symbol of its importance as a coequal, independent branch of government. The Supreme Court offers a public lecture when the Court is out of session. However, for groups smaller than 10 people there is no need to make a reservation. Please visit the Supreme Court's website at to view the Court's Lecture schedule.

The Diplomatic Reception Rooms of the Department of State, which are used for official functions hosted by the Secretary of State and other high level government officials, are open for pre-arranged tours at no charge. These rooms hold a premier collection of 18th century American furniture, paintings and decorative arts.
The U.S. Capitol is home to the U.S. Congress and its two legislative bodies, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. Through films, exhibits, and tours throughout the chamber, you will learn about how Congress works, how this magnificent building was built, and how citizens can participate in this extraordinary experiment called representative democracy.
