Tour the new U.S. Coast Guard Headquarters on the west campus of historic St. Elizabeths, featuring an 11-story office building providing nearly 1.2 million square feet of office and support space for 3,860 employees, a separate central utility plant, and two seven-story parking garages. The building, designed by Perkins + Will, Andropogon Associates, and HOK, keeps a low profile on the historic campus while scoring high on design aesthetic, user experience, and client-mandated requirements. The building is LEED(r) Gold certified.

Open to anyone 18 years and up. $25 Museum Member | $35 Non-member. Registration begins February 16, by calling 202.272.2448 from 10 am–5 pm, Monday through Friday, and will be assigned based on space availability. On-site registration is not available. To become a member, please contact the membership department at 202.272.2448. Because some tours visit active construction sites, expect some uneven flooring and stair climbing.
