Take the time to contact your congressman for this free tour. You have to submit your request through your congressional office about one month ahead of time. You learn the history and current state of the FBI through interactive displays. It reopened about the tenth...More

My daughters and I were trying to find something to do while my husband was in a meeting. We enjoyed the tour, but it was nothing special. It was educational and something different from the typical museum. It would be a must for Numismatists though.

In order to take the tour you must request it through a legislator or a senator. They will do a security check. The tour is really interesting, but it is rushed. No cameras allowed.

We really enjoyed this tour but was surprised by the fact that cameras were not allowed. I was slightly disappointed that they did not have the live firing range demonstration as the tour indicated but at least they did have an informative 10-minute video I...More
