The United States Capitol is the home of the United States Congress and the seat of the legislative branch of the US federal government. It is located on Capitol Hill at the eastern end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The original building was completed in 1800 and subsequently expanded. Chambers for the bicameral legislature are located in each of the building's wing, the House of Representatives occupies the south wing and the Senate occupies the north wing. Like the principal buildings of the executive and judicial branches, the Capitol is built in a distinctive neoclassical style and has a white exterior. Tours of the interior are possible; however, these are best arranged by contacting individual members of Congress who consider tours part of their constituent services.
You have to take subway line Blue, Orange or Silver and alight at Capitol South Station. You can walk to your destination from there.
1.Please keep quiet and don't make noise when you are in the building so as not to affect other visitors.

Washington in Spring is just beautiful. The cherry blossom on the capitol were one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. I really fell in love with it.#cherryblossoms #travelinspiration #instagramworthydestinations #beautifulpics #merrychristmas
The capitol is one of those places you have to go to while in Washington D.C. It's one of those places you've seen a hundred times on television but seeing it in real life makes you appreciate it so much more. We loved having a picnic in front of the steps while watching other tourists try and get the perfect angle for their shots.
The Capitol is one of the landmark buildings in the United States. I personally came into contact with this building that often appeared on TV screens, and my heart was inevitably surging. After some careful contact, I felt the charm of it. The white parliament is surrounded by lawns and woods and looks like ivory carvings placed on a green carpet. Here, not only is it attracted by the beautiful environment, but also admire the American attitude towards history and the pursuit of freedom. Outside the Capitol, a pool of clear water surrounds the surrounding, and a variety of exquisite sculptures stand beside it. The blue sky and green trees are not like a national office, but more like a beautiful park.
