Here is the key to the judicial branch of the United States government. This building is found across from the Capitol building. Look for the inscription "Equal Justice Under Law" on the pediment to identify this building. Inside this neoclassical building is the chamber of the nation's highest court. As you enter, just imagine the historic decisions that have taken place here. Notice that the chairs for the justices vary in height. They are actually fitted to the specifications for whomever sits there. some informative tours are given inside the chamber.

Address: 1 First Street NE
Directions: East of the Capitol on 1st Street NE, between East Capitol Street and Maryland Ave.
Phone: (202) 479-3000
