Designed for young people ages 11 and older, the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center’s new student self-guide of the Visitor Center’s Exhibition Hall and the Capitol grounds includes historical background, directed-looking activities, and questions to encourage discussion during the tour or for follow-up at school or home. Teachers may get copies of "My Capitol" for their students at the Visitor Center’s North Coat Check on the upper level or download a copy here. For further inquiries about educational programs for students and teachers, please contact the Capitol Visitor Center’s Exhibits and Education Division at email@example.com.
On Tuesday, February 3, due to a special event being held in Emancipation Hall in the Capitol Visitor Center, there will be no public tours of the Capitol. The Capitol Visitor Center will be closed all day except for individuals on official business and people going to the House and Senate Visitor Galleries.
