Yes, you can actually access the Supreme Court building! I did not know that until I checked in on Yelp, and unlike the two other branches of the US government (US Capitol and the White House), Supreme Court requires no reservation to enter. It seems like not many people know that you can enter this building so it is not... More

Every American should visit the U. S. Supreme Court at least once. Not everyone may be aware, though, that once a day the Court offers a 30 minute Courtroom Talk on the history and workings of the Court. It is presented by a member of the Archives staff, is free, and is presented in the Courtroom itself. We have taken... More

It's such an important part of American life. Take a few moments to see a courtroom without being in one to fight a ticket or something!

As a lawyer myself, this was not a trip we were going to miss. That very building many years ago had inspired me to consider law as a profession. We headed over after our Capitol tour and lunch. We started with the film in the lower level and the very well done museum on that level. This was not there... More

The 30 minute tour of the court room was fantastic! The tour guide provided us with awesome facts and information! The building itself is gorgeous, an amazing experience for my family!

I was just blown away by how nice the building is and also by the significance of this very building during the civil rights movement. It's a beautiful building and like many of the other buildings at The National Mall- it has that Roman/Greek feel to it.

We toured the Supreme Court building by ourselves and took the lecture on the court room. All of this was very interesting. They have a place to sit and eat for the public.

This building is everything you expect! The 30 minute tour was perfect. Lots of information but short enough to not get boring.

Very well given tour they are open to questions. So much smaller in real life that you would think, very large building small chambers. Another beautiful building in DC.
