This pantheon-shaped building with a bronze statue of George Washington commemorates the roots of American democracy. It is the site of George Washington's presidential inauguration (in 1789) and later many important government offices were located there.
Even through its architecture, the building refers to democracy, for it is built in Greek Revival style, referring to the democracy of Ancient Greece.
Now, there is a museum of George Washington and many important memorabilia connected to his persona are on display there (e.g. the Bible used during his presidential oath).
The entrance is free and there are also free tours guided by the rangers or the staff.
Admission to the hall is free.
Free guided tours are available without reservation.
