Three years late and nearly $360 million over budget, the Capitol Visitor Center is finally open in Washington, D.C. What do you think?

"Perhaps this can pave the way for other over-budgeted visitor centers at federal landmarks. I always thought the St. Louis Arch should have an underground visitor center directly beneath it that is shaped like a 600-foot-deep subterranean arch."

"Oooo, I can't wait until it's closed for renovations."
