The Pennsylvania State Capitol building is a functional seat of government, where laws are passed and the public policy is set for over 12 million residents of Pennsylvania. Visitors are welcome to explore the Capitol Building at their leisure, on regular weekdays. Leave plenty of time to visit our Interactive Welcome Center and Capitol Gift Shop.

Due to safety regulations, all tour groups, even those that are not conducted by General Assembly Tour Guides, are required to schedule their tours through this office at 1-800-868-7672. Failure to do so may result in unnecessary delays for your group.

Tours are limited to 80 people total per tour. Groups with more than 80 people will require multiple tour times. Please schedule accordingly

Visitors must use the public entrances - East Wing Entrance at the Fountain on Commonwealth Avenue (also the handicapped entrance), and the Main Rotunda Entrance at Third and State Streets (view map). to view a map. For more on security at the Capitol, please click here.
