All tours begin at the Empire State Plaza Visitor Center and Gift Shop at the northern end of the concourse closest to the Capitol. Space is limited, so arrive early to secure a spot.
Visitors to the Capitol will be required to pass through metal detectors and have any bags scanned through an x-ray machine. Personal belongings such as backpacks and large bags should not be brought on the tour. Sharp objects, such as pocket knives and nail clippers, will not be allowed into the building.
