My daughter loved this and I liked it. I loved the statues of those who signed the Constitution. And the women who ran the informal game show for guests who wandered by her display did a great job. The main show in the circular theatre...More

Great live theater with video to enhance the experience. Many interactive displays. Good experience except of school kids running around and down the staircase (but that’s chaperones fault not the museum)

I recently chaperoned my son's middle school trip that visited the National Constitutional Center. This was my second visit to the Center. I really enjoyed both visits. The exhibits are excellent, inspiring and thought provoking. I strongly recommend.

I have to say that the whole exhibit is designed to make sure you rmembr it. The show, the full size bronze statues of the signatories and even the emailed copy of the constitution. With your signature made it so much fun.

Brilliantly executed displays that teach the visitor about the Constitution at whatever level of detail the visitor wishes to experience. My g.f. who is a practicing attorney was impressed. The live presentation at the beginning is very good.

Expensive but worth seeing. Important tip......they offer reciprocity for many museum memberships. So if you have a membership in your hometown museum, take the card. Our threesome got in with no fee. Mutter museum did the same

It was by no means a bad experience but it was suited to educating young minds regarding what our constitution means and how it came about.

This place is very close to Independence Hall which I’m sure everyone visits. There’s a video/live presentation which is worth buying the ticket for. It’s pretty well dine as others have reviewed. For us, the high points were the volunteer staff members. At every turn,...More
