The memorial services for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg are set to begin Wednesday at the Supreme Court.

The three days of official Washington services will begin with a private ceremony in the morning, after which Ginsburg will lie in repose for a public viewing outside of the courthouse. 

The public event is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday, and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Ginsburg's coffin will then be moved to the front steps of the Supreme Court building, where the public will be allowed to honor her life. 

Ginsburg died Friday from complications related to cancer. She was 87.

On Friday, Ginsburg will lie in state at the U.S. Capitol, becoming the first woman in history honored in such a way. A private burial service will be held next week at Arlington National Cemetery.
