If you're looking for a museum-type experience, the National Constitution Center isn't really it. There's one gallery - the small George H.W. Bush Gallery - that displays historic documents such as one of the printed editions of the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and...More

This museum is a great place to walk around and see. It is a great place to take the whole family. It has interactive features and a different new limited time attraction every month.

This Museum was very well done and so educational about our Constitution. Probably not to interesting for a younger crowd but older children and adults will find it very interesting. There was a special exhibit about the Prohibition that was especially interesting. Loved it.

Yes. You will wan to set aside about 2 hours for this at least. It is right across the street from the US Mint and Liberty Bell and 1 block away from Independence Hall. This was the best of the tours. So I would recommend... More
