Walk among the Founding Fathers, sign a copy of the Constitution, and learn about the importance of this historical document at National Constitution Center. This nonprofit organization is devoted to preserving the legacy of the U.S. Constitution. Multimedia exhibits trace the Constitution from its creation in 1787, through the Amendments, to modern day. There's also a theatrical production about U.S. history. You can take pictures with the 42 life-sized bronze statues in the hall, which is styled like an assembly room. However, photography and video are prohibited elsewhere on site.

Absolutely fantastic experience. Highly commend the theatrical production providing an overview of the constitution and it's history and significance. For the very reasonable price of entrance you get hours of interactive content that is educational and also highly interesting.

An excellent and moving place. A must see for all ages. Follows our Nation’s history from the signing of the Declaration to current times. The room with bronze life sized statues of our fore fathers is exceptional. We will go back and visit again. If you travel to Philadelphia, don’t miss this!!
