Tours and Tickets
All tickets are provided to my constituents on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the large number of visitors, please request them as early as possible in order to maximize your chances.
For information on additional sightseeing and attractions, please visit my Washington, DC Tourism Information page.
The White House
Home to the President and First Family, White House tours are available during the following times (excluding federal holidays):
- Tuesday – Thursday: 7:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
- Friday: 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- Saturday: 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
The tour is self-guided and free of charge. Tour requests can be submitted up to 3 months in advance and no fewer than 21 days before your trip (although at least 30 days advance notice is strongly encouraged). Following September 11, the White House implemented new, more restrictive security standards for tours, including a limit on the number of visitors that are allowed entrance per day. For this reason, tours are subject to limited availability.
For the most current tour information, please visit www.whitehouse.gov/about/tours-and-events.
**Please note that White House tours may be subject to last-minute cancellation.
