Take a self-guided tour of the Supreme Court to learn what the highest federal court in the United States is all about. Completed in 1935, the neoclassical temple-style building shines in marble from Vermont, Georgia, Alabama, and Spain. As you enter, you will encounter the statue of Justice--a mythological female figure recognized as a legal symbol in the United States. As you tour, take note of other Beaux Arts-style sculptures, fountains, flagpoles, and benches. Court sessions are normally open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Join an organized lecture to learn about the judicial functions, history, and architecture of the court.
