Information For Student Groups

The public, lobbyists, and others may enter the Capitol during Session. However, to the greatest extent possible, we encourage engagement during the session to occur remotely. Please read Safety Protocols for the First Regular Session of the 73rd General Assembly for more information.

We are not able to provide tours or field trips at this time. 

The dome observation area and Mr. Brown's Attic Museum are currently closed.

Inquire below about booking a tour in the future or take our virtual tour here.  

We are happy to welcome student groups. Please note that student group tours during the legislative session (January through May) are extremely popular and space is limited. We recommend making your reservation request early. TOUR AVAILABILITY IS NOT GUARANTEED AS TIME SLOTS DO FILL UP QUICKLY.

Historical and legislative tours, as well as attic tours and dome walks, are available for school groups. We recommend making your reservation request early, as tour availability is limited.

Please note, we have updated our student tour guidlines, effective Fall 2018, and beginning August 10, 2019, our scheduling policies will be changing.  Follow the links below for important information about student guidelines and upcoming scheduling changes.
