Courthouse Docents

Docents train with our Tour Coordinator to learn about the history of the Courthouse, the trials and principles of justice considered in the building, the unique architecture of the building and its many legal and artistic symbols. Docents will lead hour long tours of groups of 10-30 individuals on tours of the building and courtrooms.

The John Joseph Moakley U.S. Courthouse, Seaport District, Boston
