This is a pretty good idea – taking each point of the four page US Constitution and making a marvellous exhibit to examine each and every point in it. The primary attractions are Freedom Rising – a 360 degree 17 minute live performance, We the People – constituted of hands on displays and multimedia acitivities designed to engage both adults and children – some of which items include a copy of the Emancipation Proclamation, a 20th century Jury Box, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor’s Supreme Court robe, and the American National Tree. You can even get yourself recorded reciting the Presidential Oath. Other awesome exhibits include the Capture the Moment: The Pulitzer Prize Photographs – a collection of some of the most moving images from American History. This is currently one of Philadelphia’s most beloved attractions, and it’s popularity is only growing year by year. There’s just so much to do – and just incase you missed out on anything, let the friendly staff help you on your way.

  • Very nice museum with a very nice show to really lead you into the topic of the history of the Constitution (and other important US documents) and the whole idea behind the principles the nation is based on. In the exhibition, it advances on how these principles were stated into laws, and how these there interpreted by politicians and jugdes, and therefore formed the USA as it stands today. In that they sometimes take a deep dive into political theory, as an interested reader you can for sure spend over 3 hours in the exhibition, although it sure gets repetitive in some points. As a nice historic hands-on approach, the "hall of signers" let's you see and touch all the signers of the constitution, which is especially suited for funny pictures!

  • Without a doubt, this place is worth an afternoon. Stirring presentation, great perspectives on probably the most important document in our history. Now that we had independence, the Constitution helped us preserve it. Lots of exhibits and things to read. Simply a history buffs paradise. Signers Hall is the ultimate photo op. All the signers are there in life sized bronze statues,You must go.

  • This place is worth of every penny that you will spend on the ticket. Probably this is the best place to introduce yourself to an American culture and history. If you are an American- this place will make to even more proud to be one. I totally recommend this place to everyone - no exceptions. Children, adults, youngsters, teenagers- this museum will be 101% beneficial for everyone. Only knowing your past you can build the future! I have bought a combo ticket in visitors center - national constitutional center and museum of American revolution for $29. If you don’t have a time for both of them - don’t worry- tickets are valid for ONE year!

  • We went for the Hamilton exhibit but was very pleased to see there was more than that. There is so much history about our country in Philly. We loved the Freedom Rising exhibit that was performed by a beautiful lady. There were lots of people around to answer our questions. There were interactive exhibits and more traditional reading and artifact ones. We will definatly go back.

  • I loved this museum. It's informative without being dry. It takes an insightful, unbiased view of America's founding document and applies it throughout the ages. My one criticism: the building is much larger than actual museum.
