U.S. Supreme Court Building

(Visited 25 October 2016) There’s not a whole lot to see in the U.S. Supreme Court Building, but what is there is significant. If you visit while court is in session, you can sit in the court room. When court is not in session, there is an orientation talk. Otherwise, you can just peak in the door. Here are a few pictures from my quick visit.

You can’t hardly get a picture of the front without a guard in it!

There was a sign to this spiral staircase. I’m not sure what the significance is of it, but it’s very cool.
