VOA daily public studio tours no longer require registration

Reservations are no longer required for the Voice of America daily studio tours.

Starting January 9, 2017, the tour will open to the public at 12:00 p.m. Monday through Friday (except federal holidays or when closed for special events) on a first come, first served basis. The first 20 people in line will be admitted. Interested visitors should check www.voatour.com for daily tour availability. VOA is the largest U.S. government international broadcaster.

The guided tours give visitors an opportunity to see live productions of VOA television and radio programs from a 24-hour multimedia facility that contains more than 40 radio and ten television studios.

While VOA’s official address is 330 Independence Avenue, SW, Washington, D.C., the public tour entrance is on C Street, SW, between 3rd and 4th Streets. Visitors should arrive by 11:45 a.m. to go through a security screening. Each visitor must bring a valid U.S. federal or state-issued picture ID, such as a driver’s license or passport. Non-U.S. citizens are required to provide a passport. All tours are walking and wheelchair accessible. Tours are free and conducted in English only.
