If you can't get in line early in the morning, how long is the wait to get in typically. Is it worth it?
There are two ways to see the court in session -- hearing cases. Line up very early and see the whole session (or as much as you want). Line up less early (10 am may be ok but I don't know for sure) and get to sit in back for about 3 minutes. But the court isn't hearing any more cases until October. You can tour the building without waiting in line. It is best if you go when the court is NOT having hearings because then you can go into the courtroom and see where they hear the cases. There is also a 30-minute "lecture" which is a short intro to the court, the history, the building which takes place in the courtroom (again, only when not holding a hearing). The supreme court site is pretty clear.
I'm in town next Monday (Oct. 30) and would like to see the court for the 3-minute window. I see that they have both a 10:00 and an 11:00 case that day. Do I really need to get in line at 7:00 AM? Also, if I have my backpack with a camera, etc., are there lockers or something that I'll be able to put that into? Do I need to do so before getting in line, or can I have them with me in the line, and then sort them once we go in? Thanks!
Unfortunately, you never know how early to arrive. For the 3 minute line you can probably arrive between 7-8AM. If you want to hear an entire argument you must arrive by 6AM. Regarding your camera, etc. there are lockers for you to put your material in.
I have tickets to a guided Supreme Court Tour. Can anyone tell me whether the guided tour is worth it, or if we could go ourselves and see the same things? It's just at an odd time of day and doesn't coincide with where we will be while visiting other areas. However, I still want to see it.
We did not do the guided tour. We did it ourselves .We also had plenty of other things to do like you. So suggest do the tour yourself at a time convenient to you.
We will be visiting DC next week (9/1 - 9/5) and would like to visit the Supreme Court. Will there be much for us to see, will we need to get advance tickets and I'm also wondering will the cafe be available for lunch if Court isn't in session?
A Beautiful Building. NIce to look, appreciate and learn. Earmark One to Two Hours. Café will be open. No Advance Tickets required
Thank you so much for your tips TryppAdams. I really want to see an oral argument in the Supreme Court. Where do you wait in line - is the line obvious? What time does the line form? What is the best time to start waiting in line? How long are the oral arguments? What else do you recommend seeing at the Court. Thank you. Jill
The line forms in the front plaza and it's very obvious where it is. And I although they generally start taking people at 9:30-10:00, I would plan to arrive to get your space in line much sooner. Space is very limited and you might be suprised by the turnout. Capitol police/security is generally pretty helpful if you just ask. Definitely something worth doing if you have the time, you could easily be sitting in on a moment in history!
We're heading to DC for a few days and will be there while the Supreme Court has argument days. I'd like to just see the court for the 3 minute window. I am unclear what time we should get there. Any advice?
I got there at 7:30 AM, which was perfect
We are a family of 4 with kids ages 12 and 9. We will be in Washington on Monday, March 28-Wednesday March 30th. I see the lectures will take place at 1:30,2:30, and 3:30 those days. What time do we need to arrive to be admitted into the building, hear the lecture? Also, can we purchase passes in advance to avoid any lines? Are we allowed to give ourselves a self-guided tour after the lecture? Thank you for your response!
March isn't a particularly busy time in D.C., so I'd say you don't need to arrive any more than 10-15 minutes. Passes to get in quicker aren't available. Lastly, yes, you'll be able to do a self-guided tour. Enjoy!
what is best way to arrange a tour?
There are no public guided "tours". There is a self guided tour of the museum exhibits downstairs and a courtroom lecture- neither of which you need to arrange in advance. Just check the supremecourt.gov website the day before to see what time the lectures are going to be and arrive in time to get through security and in the line about fifteen minutes before the lecture. It is in the actual courtroom and is around a half an hour long. No pictures are allowed while in the courtroom
I would love to see the suoreme court's argument next week. We are a family of 6, what time do we need to get there and can just one of us stand in line (me!) and the rest come later? Finally, is there a different time to arrive for the 10 o'clock argument as opposed to the 11 o'clock argument? Any and all information would be helpful, thanks!
Should have said "one person, one spot"
