Courthouse Tours
Program Information

DCO Tours are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. at the Harris County Civil Courthouse.

The Harris County District Clerk's Office serves the judicial system and the public by:

  • Managing and creating court records and court orders
  • Assessing and collecting court costs, fines and fees
  • Processing passport applications
  • Managing the juror summons process

This tour will give you an in-depth look at what we do by exploring the different departments within the District Clerk's office. You will also get a chance to see some historical documents from as far back as 1870.

(Tours are unavailable December 16 - January 20.)
