  • Department of the Treasury

    Banner TreasuryAdvance reservations are required and must be made through your Congressional offices. Tours are available at this time for citizens and legal residents of the United States. The name, date of birth and social security number for each visitor must be provided when making a reservation. In addition, everyone must have a photo I.D. to gain admittance to the building on the date of their scheduled tour. Also, please visit their "Virtual Tour" to view some of the historic spaces and decorative art.

    The Main Treasury Building is the third oldest building in Washington, and dates from 1836. In 1833, Robert Mills, architect of the Washington Monument, was commissioned to design a new Treasury Building after the previous two Treasury structures were destroyed by fire. Mills' T-shaped building is noted for the grand colonnade, sweeping across the entire expanse of the structure. Each of the 30 columns is 36 feet tall and carved from a single block of granite. Subsequent wings were added from 1855 to 1869, all retaining the Greek Revival influence of the Mills design.

  • Pentagon

    Banner PentagonThe Pentagon Tours program, under the purview of the Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, hosts more than 106,000 visitors annually. Our tours dynamically highlight the respective missions of the five Armed Services, the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Staff through a 60-minute presentation that includes a 1.49 mile walk through the building. This walk is punctuated by colorful displays and historic photographs depicting significant moments in military history, including the 9/11 Memorial Chapel.

    Built in just 16 months, the Pentagon is the world’s largest low-rise office building. It is twice the size of the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, has more than twice the floor space of the Empire State Building, and the U.S. Capitol could fit into any one of its five wedge-shaped sections. It boasts nearly 17 and one half miles of corridor, yet due to the Pentagon’s unique design, movement between any two opposite points takes as little as seven minutes. In addition, there are 19 escalators, 131 stairways, 284 restrooms, 691 water fountains and enough telephone wire in the building to wrap around the world four and one-half times!
