Who can take the tour?

Tours are available at this time for citizens and legal residents of the United States. The name, date of birth and social security number for each visitor must be provided when making a reservation.

In addition, everyone must have a photo I.D. to gain admittance to the building on the date of their scheduled tour.

Prohibited Items

Strollers and backpacks are not permitted in the building and there is no storage area onsite.  It is suggested they be left in the car or hotel room.  Additionally, photography (still or video) is not permitted in the building.

Tour Entrance

Visitors must enter through the West building entrance (Bell entrance).  This entrance is located in between the Main Treasury Building and the White House.  A docent will meet you to escort the group into the building.

Please note, you must notify your congressional office immediately if you need to cancel your tour once you have received confirmation.  Space is limited and there is usually a greater demand than available tour slots.  Early cancelations afford others to fill the vacant tour slots.


Special arrangements must be made, in advance, for wheelchair access to the building.


We strongly recommend that you use public transportation because nearby parking is limited. The closest metro stations are Metro Center or McPherson Square. From McPherson Square, follow the street signs to the White House. We are next door on the east side. Metrobus and Metrorail information is available by calling 202-637-7000.

What you will see

Some tour highlights are the Salmon Chase and Andrew Johnson Suites, the newly restored West dome and lobby, and the Cash Room.

Please note that this is NOT the tour for seeing the production of United States currency notes or coins.

For a tour of currency production, please visit the Bureau of Engraving and Printing's Tours page.  For a tour of coin production, please visit the US Mint's Tours page.
