Tours and Tickets
All tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to the large number of visitors to Washington, DC, it is important to request tickets as early as possible. The highest demand is for White House tours, especially in the Spring. Consequently, requests for White House tours should ideally be submitted five months in advance but no later than 21 days before your requested tour date. For information on sightseeing and attractions, please visit the Washington, DC Tourism Information page.
NOTE: As of December 2016, the Washington Monument is closed to the public for repairs, which are expected to be completed sometime in 2019. We apologize for the inconvenience.
