You must stop in here, just to imagine how much history there is in this place. Thinking about our founding fathers drafting and discussing our independence, the birth of our nation and the documents we still uphold today is awesome.

Oh my goodness, what a fantastic way to get in touch with the Founding Fathers! To be able to stand where they did in order to write the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. Seeing and experiencing this building brought my Nation's history to life.

Great place to learn our history very nastalgic, see the court room that the term standing trial was coined. See where the constitution and declaration was formed and signed. I recommend the late tour starting at 5:00 p.m.

We did an after hours dinner/tour with the tour guide dressed in characters of the Revolutionary War period. We were the only one in the hall so it was a spectacular experience. Eric with the National Park Service did a wonderful job explaining the specifics of what happened in the building
