Did you know that the Supreme Court building in
Hartford is more than one hundred years old? Did you know that it is the
only court of its kind in Connecticut? Most people are not aware of this
rich, historical treasure located in the state’s capital city. The
Connecticut Supreme Court, State Library, and Museum of Connecticut History
make up the
231 Capitol Avenue residence, directly across from the State Capitol and
Legislative Office Building.
Both adults and children can sit in the courtroom and view their state’s
history, from the beautiful state oak tree panels that cover the walls, to
the two famous murals entitled "The Allegory of
Education" and "The
Fundamental Orders, 1638-1639," which grace the wall and the ceiling.
Students may gaze up at the portraits of retired Chief Justices, and
sometimes one lucky individual will play the role of court marshal for the
day! Whether young or old, individuals can understand the importance of this
courtroom - and how it differs from the Superior and
Appellate courthouses in Connecticut.
The External Affairs Division of the Connecticut Judicial Branch welcomes
tour groups Monday through Friday. Please call the External Affairs Division
at (860) 757-2270 or e-mail
firstname.lastname@example.org with a completed tour request form to arrange a tour. Please provide
information about anyone in the tour group who may require special accommodations.
