Exhibition Hall Renovations

Exhibition Hall Renovations

The U.S. Capitol Visitor Center's Exhibition Hall is currently closed for renovations.

The space will reopen with a beautiful, bright space and new areas for student programs and hands-on activities. It will offer many opportunities for visitors to see how Congress affects their lives and how they can affect Congress. Combined with redesigned and engaging information about how Congress works, the goal is for visitors to leave the Capitol with an understanding of their value as engaged citizens and the importance of their role in our democratic republic.

During the renovation period, the Capitol Visitor Center will continue to offer a full calendar of tours and programs. Exhibition Hall is expected to reopen in 2021.
