No more waiting in long lines at the mercy of the elements to see the nation’s Capitol! The  brand-new, $621 million dollar underground complex includes a big waiting hall, a cafeteria with regional dishes, a restaurant, two movie theaters and a gallery of interactive exhibits about Congress and the Capitol.  Large skylights open to spectacular views of the rotunda looming above.


A monumental statue of King Kamehameha rules over the Visitor Center. Each state has two statues and two senators.
