On the first Saturday of each month, the Institute offers 1 p.m. drop-in tours. This discussion-based tour with a thematic focus offers deeper insights into the Institute’s exhibits and programs. Tours lead into the Today’s Vote program where visitors debate and vote on Senate legislation.

February 2020’s drop-in tour focused on Black History Month and Presidents Day. Visitors joined Institute staff on a tour of exhibits through the lens of senators who went on to serve as president, and legislative and cultural changes made by African-American leaders.
