Take a tour of the U.S. Supreme Court while you stay with us at our Washington DC Hotel. Listen to a public lecture every hour on the half-hour Monday to Friday 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m on days when the Court is not sitting, all for free! Seating is first come, first served. Be prepared for security at the entrance and take a look at the visitors etiquette to be well prepared for your visit.
Visitors may also listen in to a live oral argument of a case brought to the court. As indicated by their website, “All oral arguments are open to the public, but seating is limited and on a first-come, first-seated basis. Before a session begins, two lines form on the plaza in front of the building. One is for those who wish to attend an entire argument, and the other, a three-minute line, is for those who wish to observe the Court in session only briefly. Please do not hold a space in either line for others who have not yet arrived.”
Tours may be taken by the visitors, however, there are no guides. For more information, take a look at the Tours section of their website. Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the exhibits available on display and the Visitor’s Film.
