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 to arrange for a tour.
