Sight and sound view of Constitutional happenings during the course of its exhibit. Especially interesting to viewers are the impact of the Constitution on events in one's own lifetime. Photographs, Newspapers, TV, and the movies are all used in the exhibit.

It was a waste of time. I was expecting so much more. I guess for people that don't know anything about the subject it might be interesting, but I don't think I got anything out of it.
