Washington, DC Tour Tickets 
During peak season, lines form early at the ticket booth located on Raoul Wallenberg Place (formerly 15th Street). The ticket booth opens for same-day only ticket distribution at 8:00 a.m. One person can get up to four tickets. Tickets are limited; please plan your trip accordingly. During the end of March and beginning of April (Spring Break/Cherry Blossom season) if you are not in line by 6:30 - 7:00 a.m., it is unlikely you will get tickets that day.

 

Tours run every 15 minutes from 9 to 10:45 a.m. and 12:30 to 2 p.m. in March.  April through August tours run every 15 minutes from 9 to 10:45 a.m., 12:30 to 3:45 p.m. and 5 to 7:00 p.m. with advanced reservations held for large groups between 11 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.

 

The Visitor Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (door closes at 3:00) in March, and 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (door closes at 7:00), April through August.

 

There is a maximum of four tickets allowed per person.

 

Tour operators with valid identification are allowed a maximum of 10 tickets per tour and 25 tickets total per day. If you arrive with a group of over 10 people, your group will not be accommodated unless you have a reservation. No tickets will be given out at the ticket booth for large groups.

There is a minimum requirement of 10 people and a maximum of 50 people allowed per tour. Requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis, and may be submitted from two weeks to 12 months in advance of the visit date. It is highly recommended that groups who wish to visit during the spring and summer months complete their reservations well in advance of their visit date due to high demand during that period.


Depending on availability, groups may choose from tours running every 15 minutes, Monday through Friday, beginning at 11:00 a.m. and ending at 12:15 p.m. A confirmation letter (fax or mail) serves as the group's timed-entry reservation. It is sent at the conclusion of the reservation process.


Tour operators with valid identification are allowed a maximum of 10 tickets per tour and 25 tickets total per day. If you arrive with a group of over 10 people, your group will not be accommodated unless you have a reservation. No tickets will be given out at the ticket booth for large groups.
