Supreme Court of the United States

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Amber Autumn on May 20, 2005

The Supreme Court has a Greek temple facade with Corinthian capitols in front, and is just a brief walk from the Capital Building. On the steps, I saw the female figure, the Contemplation of Justice, and the male was the Guardian or Authority of Law. On top of the building is "Equal Justice Under Law". It's an amazing building with a legacy of making historic decisions that affected our nation. One highlight in the building to see is the staircase. There are many staircases in the world, but none as architecturally interesting as this one. The staircase was this marble spiral one that you had to bend backwards to get a great picture from above. There was a presentation on the third floor, which was hours before you got into it.
