    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.

    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!

    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.

    This site was established on July 4, 2003 and is devoted to the United States Constitution and its legacy. "Freedom Rising" is one its exhibitions; a 17-minute multimedia story about the Constitution.

    Gorgeous building. Heavy on the pro-America propaganda, so approach the presentation and exhibits with a skeptical mind and don't get distracted by all of the flashy displays.

    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.

    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!

    Best phrase in the whole museum: "yes, there may be problems with freedom, but the solution has never been to take freedom away". This museum is absolutely amazing, I wish to come back ASAP!

    Get to see the bill of rights, too bad no photos were allowed. I really loved the constitution signing statues, the scene is really well done.

    Great museum with awesome exhibits. Check out Signer's Hall for the life size statue of the delegates. Just stay away from the café's cheesesteaks! Lol

    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."

    I don't know why the admission price is so high but it's a nice place to see once.

    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.

    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.

    The movie at the end is worth the whole visit alone. Great piece of history and appreciation of our liberties.

    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.
