Only seen during our guided tour and our walk along the Mall. Very impressive building for a seat of power. Maybe next time we will get the chance of a tour.

Whether you approve of Congress or disapprove, every American should try to see the Capitol once in their life. The tour is informative and you may learn something as to how your government works.

It is worth the tour even if the scaffolding is still up.
