Each state in the Union has contributed to the museum that is the U.S. Capitol Building over the years, and since my home state is Tennessee, I wanted to give it the spotlight today! I recently got together with a Tennessee Congressperson’s office for a special tour of Tennessee’s part in the U.S. Capitol. Come see what we found!
The United States Capitol is part museum, part history factory, and part office building. It is also one of the most sought-after sites in Washington, D.C. You can certainly go through the Capitol Visitor Center at the Capitol when you arrive, but you will get a better tour if you request a staff-led tour from your Congressperson!
