Trip Planner: USA / Pennsylvania / Philadelphia / National Constitution Center
Walk among the Founding Fathers, sign a copy of the Constitution, and learn about the importance of this historical document at National Constitution Center.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.

Frankly, I don't know how to rate this. As an historian with a specialization in US Constitutional History, I learned nothing new at this museum. However, the docents were outstanding...

Good museum to visit if you want to learn more about the constitution and the different amendments. Must do the narrated show: gives a good historical perspective. Should start the visit with the show, then visit the galleries on the second floor, then the first floor. A lot of very knowledgeable guides. Ask questions! Good place for kids, especially upper elementary school students. Street parking is available, if not, there are plenty of paid lots. A great companion to the Independence Hall and Liberty Bell.
Phenomenal Museum! A museum done right! If you like to read, lots of information written & artifacts. You like to learn visually, lots of videos to watch and enjoy. Your a hands on learner, they got it! Staff was friendly, the museum was quiet & clean. Tips... Don't miss the live show, it's great! You need at least 2 hours but you could spend 4. Use your NARM Pass, it's free entry.
