Reviewed September 19, 2011

As a UK national- quite interesting to see the reverence given to this institution. Probably more interesting if you work in courts elsewhere.

“Cool...to say you've done”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

The supreme court is spectacular from the outside, not as exciting on the inside. There's a mini museum when you first walk in, and you can look inside to see what the supreme court actually looks like. So, it's cool to say you've seen the supreme court, but not a must-walk-inside.

“excellent”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

We visited the United States Supreme Court whilst in DC. Like all the other civic buildings it was free to enter. The wholoe experience was excellent, the displays and features were well appointed and the information provided very interesting.

“Info and Q & A session”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

After we were seated, our "guide" gave us some facts about the Court and members of the current court. We were then allowed to ask questions, which she then answered. My husband was expecting a bit more since we had gotten our "tickets" from our congressman before we arrived in DC, but we got the same "tour" that everyone else got. It was a respite from the DC heat and we were sitting the entire time so I was OK with it. Not really what I would call a tour though. I think we were in there about 20 mins.

“Informative, That's All”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

When we entered the building, the guide at the desk was very knowledgeable. She dealt out information about the history of the building and the justices. Other than her information, it was basically looking at an office with a courtroom. The Spiral Staircases on each side were nice to look at, but other than that, you're looking at portraits of justices, and going upstairs to see a courtroom. Maybe if we went when court was in session it may have been better, although I hear you only get to hear about 10-15 minutes of a case before the next group arrives. It was nice to see, but I doubt I'll be returning.
