NOTE: Message from the White House regarding Tours
"Due to staffing reductions resulting from sequestration, we regret to inform you that White House Tours will be canceled effective Saturday, March 9, 2013 until further notice. Unfortunately, we will not be able to reschedule affected tours."
"We very much regret having to take this action, particularly during the popular Spring touring season. For updates regarding this situation, please contact the White House Visitors Office 24 Hour Hotline at (202) 456-7041."
Senator Casey's office is happy to arrange guided tours of the Capitol for constituents through the new Capitol Visitor Center. The Capitol Visitor Center is open to visitors from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday except for Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Day and Inauguration Day. There are no tours provided on Sundays.
Tours generally last approximately 45 minutes and do not include the Senate Gallery. If you would like to visit the Senate Gallery, you are welcome to pick up Gallery Passes in our office, room 393 of the Russell Senate Office Building, before your tour. We recommend that you submit all Capitol tour requests to our office at least two weeks in advance.
You may also book a guided Capitol tour at your own convenience directly at http://www.visitthecapitol.gov up to one day prior to your desired tour date. If you have any questions about this process, or if we can be of any additional assistance to you, please contact us at (202) 224-6324.
Self-guided tours of the White House are available Tuesday through Saturday (excluding Federal holidays) from 7:30am to 12:30pm. Please keep this in mind when listing dates that you are available for the tour. Tours generally last approximately 45 minutes. Due to the fact that demand often exceeds availability, we are unable to guarantee requested tours. It is strongly recommended that you submit your request 4 to 6 months in advance (closer to 6 months for peak tour season, which is from April to August). Please be aware that the White House performs background checks on all tour attendees.
