Tips from locals
The Jefferson Building is a slightly under-the-radar destination on Capitol Hill. It is beautifully ornate and contains Thomas Jefferson's personal library.
Take a tour and contrast this building to the interior of the National Building Museum. Did you know aluminum was ..... ?(take the tour to find out!)
It's the oldest federal institution in the US, our national library, and it is awesome. There is a free one hour walking tour and also an on-line tour, plus many other options.
