    This is the spot to get your "We the People" on. Did you know that the dimensions of Signers’ Hall are the same as the room where the document was signed in Independence Hall, only two blocks away? Read more

    The audio tour is more like a video tour--not worth the $5 because it's hard to even find someplace quiet enough to watch a bunch of 4min videos. Prohibition exhibit (through 6/13) is great!

    Check out "American Spirits: The Rise & Fall of Prohibition." During prohibition, Ma McGillin's shackled the front door of McGillin's. The bar survived by letting patrons in the side door for "tea."

    Okay, so it's not much for the money but seeing statues of the Constitution signers is pretty cool. Plus they do run special events that are worth it.
