The 18-minute presentation in the Kimmel Theater is something every American should see in their lifetime. The Signers Hall was also breathtaking.

It feels too much at first. Lots of touch screens and trivia. The fun comes at the expense of the serious. I would like more about the Reconstruction and the election controversy of 2000.

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!
