The Supreme Court Building in Washington DC was built in 1935 after Chief Justice William Howard Taft persuaded Congress to construct a permanent home for the Court. Until that time, the highest U.S. Court met in quarters in the Capitol Building.

The Supreme Court Building is open to the public on weekdays throughout the year. Visitors can learn about the history and architecture of the Court during a Courtroom Lecture, watch a visitors' film, and view the exhibitions and public areas of the building. See the following pictures and get a glimpse of the Supreme Court Building.
