  • 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. Could not improve the experience and highly recommend people do not miss the theatrical performance if attending.
  • 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!!
