Supreme Court of the United States

This trip to Washington, D.C. includes visits to the seats of two of the three branches of the United States government.  Our day begins with a private courtroom lecture at the Supreme Court of the United States to learn about the judicial functions of the court, the history of the building, and the architecture of the courtroom.  You will be able to explore the rich history of the court through a variety of exhibitions.  After our lunch at the Supreme Court’s cafeteria, we will enjoy a tour of the historic United States Capitol—the magnificent building that houses our Congress.  It includes an orientation film and a guided walking tour where we will see the Crypt, the Rotunda, and National Statuary Hall.  You also will have time to visit Exhibition Hall to learn more about the story of the U.S. Congress and the building of the Capitol.

Reservations for this program are limited to 30.  If you are unable to purchase tickets and are interested in being placed on a waitlist, please contact Cathy Boe at (804) 342-9657 or at cathy@vahistorical.org.
