This was a really cool experience - we learned a lot, got to stand by life sized statues of the founders of our constitution, and really enjoyed this visit! Definitely would recommend this to families with children as it was a very interactive place!

Very large museum with some interesting exhibits. Hands on exhibits testing your knowledge were a nice touch. Worth the trip.

How cool is it that the visitors center can get you a free ticket for Independence Hall (which is also wonderful) and that you can use that free ticket to score you half price admission to this place? This place does have a fantastic live...More

We had the chance to see the exhibit attached to Signers Hall. It’s a room dedicated to the Bill of Rights. Although this a great room for explaining all the amendments it felt small. The Bill of Rights is on display but you can’t really...More
