The National Constitution Center is America’s first and only museum devoted to the U.S. Constitution, its ideals and its legacy of active citizenship.
The museum, which opened in 2003, has hosted political debates and speeches, including then-presidential candidate Barack Obama’s historic address on race in March 2008.
Absolutely watch the Freedom Rising presentation. Extremely motivating and patriotic.
Barack Obama delivered his memorable speech on race in March 2008 at the National Constitution Center, and Obama and Hillary Clinton debated here in April 2008 during the Democratic primary race.
Go to the room with the statues of signers. It's sweeeeeet.
They have the cool bronze statues of the signers of the declaration of independence.
Make sure to log into the computer in the signers' room, you can get a certificate of you signing the Constitution! Not bad at all!
Definitely check out Wayne Wheeler's Amazing Amendment Machine as part of the Prohibition exhibit.
The National Constitution Center has more than 100 interactive exhibits that engages students to think about the ways the Constitution has shaped American democracy.
One of the most stirring presentations I have seen. And don't miss the quilts.
Make sure you don't miss a visit with George Mason. Learn why he is so important and how his dissent led to the addition of the Bill of Rights.
The spies exhibit is pretty interesting and not to biased.
Go see the ancient rome in america exhibit before it's gone. Totally worth it.
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.
Definitely need to watch the Fighting for Democracy show....great performance!
Budget at least a couple of hours to get through the main exhibit. It's pretty dense.
When you go to see Freedom Rising, try to sit in the highest row.. Makes the experience even better!!
on my to do list
Nice ~ 😍😍
Free to military!
Make sure you start with the live show that's included with your ticket. It leads directly to the main exhibition. We did it backwards by mistake!
Great place to visit
The Pulitzer Prize winning photography traveling exhibit is worth a visit. It's in Philly til Dec 31st.
OMG, this is a great experience, from live actor kickoff to the Signers' Room, where you can walk among our Founding Fathers. Check out the temporary "1968" exhibit too.
1968 exhibit is groovy!
1968 exhibition is remarkable
This center makes learning history interactive (and more interesting) for kids.
The prohibition exhibit was excellent.
Prohibition exhibit is on now
Prohibition show is free on Sundays.
Beautiful place. Brewer's Plate is the best event of the year!
I reallt enjoyed the Freedom Rising show.
See the amazing introductory film/performance at the Constitution Center, then have your picture taken with a Founding Father in Signer's Hall.
The National Constitution Center always has an interesting featured exhibit. Signer's Hall, with life-size sculptures of the signers of the Constitution, is a must-see.
Great time!!!! Fun every time, o and if your active duty military your free!
Two squish penny machines. 8 designs total. You see them right outside of the gift shop as soon as you walk in!
