Knowing that the U.S. Capitol Rotunda would be closed to visitors between July 27 and September 7 to prepare for restoration, the Capitol Visitor Center began in January to develop a Rotunda app that allows visitors to:
- Take a virtual tour of the Rotunda with the help of 360-degree imaging
- Learn about each of the sculptures and paintings in the Rotunda
- Explore up close the fresco painting on the Rotunda ceiling
- Learn about the types of ceremonies that occur in the Rotunda
- Discover how the Rotunda was used as a hospital
- Find out about the Capitol Dome Restoration Project
- …and much more.
The Capitol Visitor Center is pleased to announce that a Rotunda app is now available to download using the buttons below. Links to the Rotunda app and others can also be found on the Capitol Visitor Center apps page.
