This place is kind of overwhelming with so much good information. There is just so much to take in. I especially like the signing room with statues of the different signers in lifesize form.

I was looking forward to seeing the Center but found the majority of the exhibits tired looking with little use of the current technology that would allow them to come to life. The National Park Service needs to update this one.

Original copy of Emancipation Proclamation. Incredible. Be sure to visit theater, statue hall and get yourself sworn in as president.

"National Constitution Center" might not sound like a super fun place to spend an afternoon, but it is a surprisingly interesting museum. I'm not sure that young children would enjoy it, but teens and adults will enjoy the experience. The museum is unique for several...More

This was a stop on a recent visit to Philadelphia. They are having a Civil War and Reconstruction theme going on right now. The exhibits are very educational. They have games and activities to help educate. The gift shop is really great.
