The week in Washington was capped off Friday with a visit by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Roll Call was in New Hampshire last weekend covering lawmakers on the campaign trail. This week, Trump's vice presidential candidate Mike Pence visited Capitol Hill and met with congressional Republicans. Members of the media got a sneak peek at the National Museum of African American History and Culture — opening to the public on Saturday, Sept. 24. And the Library of Congress got a new, and historic, leader. Carla Hayden will be the first female and first African American to helm the library.

Here is a look at the week in photos:
