US Capitol & Library of Congress Tour - SOLD OUT

Matchbox Capitol Hill is the neighborhood gathering place for fun, upscale casual dining, with local, award-winning beers, broad spectrum wines, and handcrafted signature cocktails you won’t find anywhere else.  A former vending machine warehouse built in 1927, some of the treasures found in this building are skylights covered up for decades, original timber beams, and a shuffleboard that now serves as the main bar top.

For history and architecture buffs alike, this tour takes you through the hallowed halls of one of America’s most famous buildings. Upon arrival to the Capitol, guests gather in the Capitol Visitors Center before experiencing the architecture, history, and wonders of this beautiful domed structure that proudly represents our Nation.  The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world, with millions of books, recordings, photographs, newspapers, maps and manuscripts in its collections.
