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.

National Constitution Center Reviews & Ratings
The place was huge, it was a great experience. Everything looks amazing, and lots of information! I mostly loved the theater, it was an amazing sight and great story! The narrator in the theater explained everything about the U.S. and how it became how it's like now. I really really suggest going, and better with friends or family!
Especially loved the room with the signers of the Constitution. Can walk right up to Ben Franklin and look him in the eyes. Touch the hands of the signers. Look at the lines in their hands. Stand right next to George Washington's statue and marvel at his height. It is a very powerful place that perfectly captures the feelings of that time when the signers were debating and making our Constitution and nation.
This place is worth every dollar. There is a fantastic actor monologue in the theatre. A video of Ben Stein answering constitutional amendment questions. The state's in order of inclusion in the union. See soldiers tents, learn about Henry box Brown. You will easily spend 2 hours here.
Great place to visit. Be sure to catch the show it's very interesting and full of history. This is also part of the art reach access program making it $2 per person for 4 people.
We only had an hour here but we could have spent an entire day between the permanent hall (free to explore) and the other temporary exhibits (which cost money). The Constitution Hall (free exhibit) was fantastic. There is a lot going on, which could be distracting and overwhelming at times, but I managed it by sticking to one (either the inner or outer) circle of the exhibit at a time. There's a lot of background noise and music from the plethora of exhibits, and the exhibit room itself is quite dim, but it was made up for by the probing questions and thoughtful interpretations throughout. We will definitely be back.
