America's Founding Fathers Exhibit Reviews & Ratings
This place was fantastic!! My 9-year old son was instantly drawn to the Liberty Bell replica out front and vigorously rang it. It was so loud! I was going to apologize when we walked in but the lovely woman running the museum said she loves it when we ring the bell. She was amazing! Very friendly and full of information. We walked around the shop and then enjoyed the program in Constitution Hall. It was so lifelike and informative. The entire family learned a lot in a short time. We arrived too late to shoot a real musket but next time, for sure!!
This was a fun activity for a rainy day. The presentation was very informative and well thought out. There were backgrounds to read on all of the signers of the declaration. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to shoot a musket, but maybe next time. I definitely recommend a visit...you won't be disappointed.
Didn't see the museum, just went to shoot a musket. Dave (the range fella) was very helpful and good at explaining how to fire the musket safely and accurately. Very friendly as well. Would definitely encourage others to go try it.
Pros: high quality static display of the declaration signing. Tour guides are very knowledgeable and welcoming. Lots of background information on all the conference attendees. Cons: high quality static display of the declaration signing. Younger kids may be bored. Definitely worth a stop if there's a history buff in the family and a nice break from hot or bad weather.
Absolutely amazing! Great historical info, reenactment, and shooting a real, historically accurate Kentucky rifle, which was used in the Revolutionary War. Very interesting and interactive attraction. Very nice employees. Loved it and would return anytime!
