Unfortunately, the Embassy of France does not have the capacity to provide access for French citizens to public tours of the White House or the Capitol.

However, we invite French citizens wishing to visit the White House, the Capitol, the Pentagon, the Supreme Court of the United States, or the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to contact the office of Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, who represents the District of Columbia.
