Visit Washington, DC
Washington is an exciting and beautiful city with museums, monuments, buildings, and culture that capture the history and spirit of the American experience. With so many attractions, planning a visit can be confusing, so Congressman Schiff’s office is glad to help visitors from the 28th District organize tours.
Planning a trip in advance
With early notice – at least 90 days if possible and no less than 21 – visitors can request White House, Capitol, and Bureau of Engraving and Printing tours through our office. For the best chance of having requests confirmed, please submit the tour request form as soon as you know your travel plans, since many tours fill up as early as three months in advance.
In addition, many attractions allow visitors to make their own reservations directly, including the State Department, Pentagon, and National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Planning a trip at the last minute
Most attractions in DC are free and do not require reservations. Additionally, the Capitol, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Holocaust Memorial Museum, and National Museum of African American History and Culture all offer same-day or standby tickets. Unfortunately, visits to the White House, Pentagon, State Department, and FBI are not possible without reservations due to security measures.
