The Voice of America is canceling VOA Studio Tours until further notice due to concerns related to the Coronavirus/COVID-19. We will be continuously reevaluating the situation, as more information on the Coronavirus/COVID-19 becomes available through official national public health channels. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this might cause. Please check back with us regularly for any updates.
Tours of the VOA radio and television studios in Washington are available to the public. It's a fascinating look at the largest U.S. international broadcast operation.
The Voice of America Studio Tour is a behind-the-scenes look at live broadcasting in radio, television, and the Internet in several of our more than 40 languages. Daily tours begin at noon and last 30-45 minutes.
You will need to present a valid US federal or state-issued picture ID, such as a driver's license, passport or REAL ID compliant state-issued ID. A non-US citizen is required to provide a passport. The building security guards cannot accept other documents nor waive these requirements. Starting May 3, 2023, any state-issued picture ID presented by a visitor to a federal facility (such as VOA) MUST be REAL ID compliant.
