Supreme Court Tours

The Supreme Court is America's highest legal institution and one of the most iconic landmarks in Washington DC. Since 1935, this stately example of Corinthian design has been attracting visitors from across the country and around the globe. Visitors will find two statues near the front steps—one representing the male Guardian of Law and another the female Contemplation of Justice—as well as a detailed bronze door that showcases images telling the story of the United States' legal system.

While it's possible to visit this judicial landmark on your own, many popular tours include an up-close look at the building's marble exterior. Families looking to explore the city and see the Supreme Court building can do so on a hop-on, hop-off trolley and avoid the hassle of coordinating travel, while it's also possible to take a bike tour and see the sights on two wheels.

Practical Info

The Supreme Court is located on the east side of Capitol Hill. Travelers can start lining up at 8am for entry into the building, so plan accordingly. Visitors can hear oral arguments when court is in session but should plan to arrive 90 minutes before scheduled arguments in the fall and three hours ahead in March and April.
