The US Supreme Court building is the home of the highest court in the US. The Supreme Court building opened in 1935. Before this, the Court shared the Capitol with Congress.
The building contains some amazing statues and sculptures, and the bronze doors at the entrance are also a highlight. The 16 columns on the outside are made of marble, and there are busts of each former Chief Justice on marble pedastals inside. There is much more to see in this great building.
On Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from October to April, visitors can sit in on oral arguments. This is on a first-come first-served basis.
Hours are 9 AM - 4:30 PM Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays.

The Supreme Court - what else...
The Supreme Court - what else can you say?? There really aren't any grand tours available as this is a working building, but it's still worth a little visit. You can just cross the street from the Capitol and you're there.
My favorite activity in DC is...
My favorite activity in DC is the US Supreme Court, the best free show in town. Show up early, 8 AM at the latest. The wait until it starts at 10 AM seems long, with security being heavy. Once the show starts, you will see a barrister at the height of his career arguing before nine (maybe eight) of the sharpest judges in America. Humor, drama, and suspense, all at no cost to you.
