Education

Whether you're a student, teacher or family, visiting the Capitol is a great way to explore the roots of our country's government through stories and hands-on activities.

Visitors can choose from a variety of lessons about Congress and the Capitol that go beyond the traditional Capitol tour.  The Capitol Visitor Center offers students and teachers a wide range of resources, such as classroom research projects, lesson plans, and even activity sheets to use on your visit.
