Virtual Tours


We invite you to take a Virtual Tour of the largest Roman Catholic church in the United States and North America and one of the ten largest churches in the world!

View the Crypt Church, the Great Upper Church, and the 80 Chapels and Oratories that are located on the Basilica’s Upper and Lower Levels. Stroll through the National Shrine as you scroll through the beautiful photos and follow your location on the accompanying map.

Take our 360° Virtual Tours to see the Basilica’s Exterior, Great Upper Church and Crypt Church up close up and personal! With the click of a mouse, you can look up, down, and all around, and zoom in and zoom out.

To enhance your experience, we recommend the Basilica’s Guide and Tour Book. This 144-page soft-cover book features additional photographs and descriptions on each stop of the tour, and includes the history of the National Shrine along with interesting facts and figures. It is available through the National Shrine Shops at for $3.50 plus shipping. It is a must-have for your visit online or in person.

Enjoy the tours!
