Highly Recommend - Great App
Excellent app that I will use next time I'm in DC visiting the Capitol Bldg. Easy to navigate (3 different ways)
& swipe capabilities make doing so quick & easy. Great graphics & interesting stories on the statues.
Every hs group visiting could use this site ... Kids would prob enjoy using an app (& their smart ph).
I would love to see it expanded to include other points of interest on Cap Hill. Well done!
Great resource for giving tours!
This app is a great tool for answering questions about the U.S. Capitol Building (and it's statues). Plus, great pictures and tidbits. Thanks for the resource!
