Visiting D.C.

Visiting DC

If you are planning a visit to our nation’s capital, Senator Luján’s office can help you set up tours of the United States Capitol Building and The White House as COVID-19 protocols allow. We can also provide information about other attractions that do not require you to request tours through our office.

And if you have the time, we’d love for you to visit our office. We’re located in the Russell Senate Building, Office #498 and we are open during regular business hours, M-F.


U.S. Capitol Building

Tours of the United States Capitol have resumed, though size and frequency of tours remain limited due to building admittance policies in both the Capitol and Senate Office Buildings. Tours are offered Monday – Friday from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM. School groups cannot exceed 50 persons and other groups are limited to 15 persons.

Members of the public can reserve tours directly through the Capitol Visitor Center:
