While investigating the rooms, visitors will find clickable links for pop-up images of specific items such as the sculptured busts and portraits of chief justices and details of sculptures and architectural features. As visitors navigate through the building, a small text box also offers additional information about the current location or subject. When visiting the courtroom, interesting videos are available for selection describing the figures represented in the four friezes that grace the walls of the room.
