Under the Constitution, same-sex couples seek in marriage the same legal treatment as opposite-sex couples, and it would disparage their choices and diminish their personhood to deny them this right. – Anthony Kennedy, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States

Today the Supreme Court of the United States, in a 5-4 decision, ruled that same-sex couples have a Constitutional right to marry any damn where they choose. Here’s how museums are celebrating the historic decision on Twitter.

on view: hill house rulz

The first video of 2014 On View is “Hill House Rulz” from St. Paul, Minnesota’s James J. Hill House, a historic site managed by the Minnesota Historical Society. Home of the founder of the Great Northern Railway, the “ginormous” mansionย and grounds are open to visitors year-round. All praises be to the staff for introducing us to the site while presenting a lot of normally snooze-inducing facts (operating hours, history, etiquette, etc.) in a fun, irreverent way.
