White House Tickets
Unfortunately, the White House has limited its tours since 2001. The White House requests that each Congressional office submit a request for a tour, and begins accepting requests 6 months in advance. The availability of tours is limited and space typically fills up three months in advance. March through September is the busiest season for White House requests. Tours are selected by the White House Visitors Office by lottery from the 535 Congressional offices.
Tours are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Requests can be submitted up to six months in advance and no less than 21 days in advance. You are encouraged to submit your request as early as possible as a limited number of spaces are available. Please note that White House tours may be subject to last minute cancellation.
We will make every attempt to secure a White House tour for you, but due to their limited tour schedule, it may not be possible. The White House Visitor Center and Museum Shop is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, however, and is located at 1450 Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
