When you enter, your wristband gets you into the whole exhibit including the one-man show / presentation on the history of the Constitution - not a lecture, but an emotional description of those early days of the Nation. After that = the upstairs exhibit area...More

I really like this museum. It’s interactive engaging and the spacious environment is inspiring. Enjoy Signers Hall , the Hamilton exhibit and so Much more. The location is great by the National Independence Park and so much to easily walk to.

Was surprised how expensive this Museum is and how little it delivers to interest visitors..... unless they increase the available exhibits I suggest you not pay the high admission price.

We heard the word: Be sure to visit and so we did. This museum did not disappoint. To start with, there is a fabulous film and then you can start touring. There are lots of items from the 1700's and audio information. The George Bush...More
