We are delighted to welcome groups of 20 or more to the Library of Congress for self-guided exploration. Guided tours are not available at this time. However, volunteers are stationed around the Jefferson Building to answer questions, give directions, and share stories about the building, the collections, and the institution.

Timed entry passes are available for group visits Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a m. to 5 p.m. (last passes available at 4 p.m.). You may request your group’s passes up to 60 days in advance. Requests may take up to three business days to process. We are unable to process same-day group reservations. Contact GroupVisits@loc.gov with any questions.
