  • Was only here for a short time but enjoyed it while I was there. The central area of the building is a huge replica senate room with well-informed staff.
  • I really enjoyed our time at the Institute. Lots of history about the Senate. Loved the interactive features and being part of a vote in the Senate chamber. A lot more goes into passing laws than I ever knew! lol The replica of Sen Kennedy's office was the icing on the cake during our visit. All the paintings he did are hanging on the walls of the reception area of his office....I never realized what a good artist he was.
  • An incredible facility combined with an incredible staff, EMK offers a one of a kind immersive experience. I try to take a field trip with my middle school civics students annually and we are always left amazed. They have rebuild the US Senate chamber to scale and offer an innovated SIM as well as the ever changing daily roll call. In a time of political division and dysfunction, The EMK Institute for the US Senate provides some hope in the dark.
  • Excellent facility; very much enjoyed the "mock bill debate" while sitting in the Senate chamber. The people working there were very knowledgeable and courteous.
  • A wonderful and educational experience. A great interactive experience, the staff is very friendly and seem to love their jobs. The chance to follow the making of a law, then playing Senator in the hall was great. Don't go and say nothing. Stand and be heard. It will contribute to your experience. I plan to go back and bring my out of town guests who have not seen it yet. A MUST stop for every American!
