  • This is an important part of American history. While a lot of tourists come here don’t get too distracted with all that. Read all the information or get a tour guide to learn about the foundation of the United States. That being said, such an important place should be better maintained. I felt embarrassed that this is how we treat our landmark for the world to see.

  • This was such a surprise for us! Just happened to be walking by and decided to pop in and have a look. Very nice! I love history and anything to do with our guy George! Nice steps to sit a spell and rest a bit too!

  • There is not a ton to see at this site, but they usually have the Washington Bible which is an incredible artifact and makes the trip well worth it. The Washington Bible is the same Bible that George Washington used when he took the oath of office when he became the first President of the United States. Call ahead to make sure it'll be there! Sometimes it gets loaned out to other institutions. Also, the structure itself is worth seeing. Gorgeous building.

  • Very important place of American history and a place with easy access. Must visit. Opp is New York stock exchange!!

  • Nice, indoor free public national park. It was a little unclear where to start with the exhibits, but we caught on. Downstairs they seemed to have been doing some kind of maintenance. Not very crowded, which was nice.
