VirginiaJourneys_WashingtonDC_2.19.20The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest tribunal in the nation for all cases and controversies arising under the Constitution or the laws of the United States. Completed in 1935, this majestic building showcases a variety of exhibitions about the judicial functions of the court, the history of the building, and the architecture of the courtroom, along with a film featuring interviews with the Chief Justice and both sitting and retired Justices. Our visit also includes a private courtroom lecture for VMHC members only.

The Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument, operated in partnership with the National Park Service, has been the headquarters for the National Woman’s Party since 1929. The historic house features permanent exhibition galleries that tell the stories of the women who have dedicated their lives to the fight for women’s rights since 1913. The collection includes many sculptures and portraits of women involved in the suffrage and equal rights movements, including Susan B. Anthony’s desk and a banner used during the first U.S. protests demanding women’s enfranchisement.

Virginia Journeys is a members-only travel program. The reservation fee includes transportation, admission fees, lunch, and snacks and beverages while in transit. The reservation fee is nonrefundable. Cancelled reservations may be eligible for a charitable contribution tax deduction and will be receipted.
