  • Since it opened in 1875, Pioneer Courthouse is one of four primary locations where the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit hears oral arguments. It also houses the chambers of the Portland-based judges on the Ninth Circuit. It is open for self-guided tours between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday (except holidays). A brochure for the self-guided tour is available from the Clerk's Office. Visitors are encouraged to bring a camera and take photos in spaces open to visitors. Spaces included in the tour are the historic lobbies, the Judges' Conference Room, the Courthouse Visitor's Center, the historic courtroom, the library, the attorney waiting area, all of the visiting judges' chambers, and the historic cupola. Some spaces are not available for viewing during weeks when court is in session.
  • A truly hidden attraction. People don't really know that it's available for self-guided tours. Most of the rooms are open and available for viewing. It's really cool to be able to see all of the interesting court-related things.
  • Absolutely beautifully lit up at night. Such a historic place.
  • With asking to step into the tower and enjoy if the view of Pioneer Square.
  • Beautiful courthouse overlooking the square. Lots of fun things to do in the area
