Tour the Courthouse.
The Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse in St. Louis, and the Rush Hudson Limbaugh Sr. U.S. Courthouse in Cape Girardeau offer a unique field trip program, free of charge, for audiences of all ages. The tours are age-appropriate and can be aligned with Missouri Grade Level & Course Level Expectations, at your request. Programs are also available for scouts and other special-interest groups.
See the U.S. Constitution in action.
Your group will gain a deeper understanding of what the courts do, and why it matters. Tours can include working courtrooms and may allow participants to observe actual proceedings. Groups will have the opportunity to meet various players in the judicial process.
The highlight of every visit to the Thomas F. Eagleton Courthouse is the Judicial Learning Center.
The highlight of every visit to the Rush H. Limbaugh Sr. Courthouse is the Judicial Education and History Center.
