Project Description

The mission of the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center is to provide a welcoming and educational environment for visitors to learn about the unique characteristics of the House and the Senate and the legislative process as well as the history and development of the architecture and art of the U.S. Capitol. The Visitor Center provides an increased focus on visitor comfort, safety and security resulting in a seamless, positive visitor experience at the U.S. Capitol. The visitor experience is an intellectual and emotional encounter comprised of highly personal moments that inform, involve and inspire those who come to see the U.S. Capitol.

The Capitol Visitor Center is the newest addition to the Capitol Complex. It was designed to make the U.S. Capitol more accessible, convenient, secure and information for millions of visitors each year.

The CVC contains space for exhibits, visitor comfort, theaters, an auditorium, gift shops, security, a service tunnel for truck loading and deliveries, mechanical facilities, storage and office space for the House and Senate.
