Useful information

Schedule Advance Tours

Requests for a free public tour of the White House must be made in advance through your local member of Congress, at least 21 days before your visit. Note that entry is not guaranteed, as tour spots are distributed on a first come, first served basis.

To Bring or Not To Bring

If you do secure a tour time, don't forget to bring your photo ID; if you are visiting the US from abroad, this must be your passport. Try to leave as much as possible at your vacation rental, as only small handbags are allowed inside, and there are no locker or storage facilities on site. You can take pictures with your smartphone, but there is no flash photography or video recording permitted, for security reasons.

A Helpful Alternative

Tours are only available until lunchtime from Tuesday to Saturday, but the White House Visitor Center is open every day from 7:30 am to 4 pm.
