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!

Very large museum with some interesting exhibits. Hands on exhibits testing your knowledge were a nice touch. Worth the trip.

We initially had no intention of visiting this, as our time in Philadelphia was extremely limited, but the lady at the visitor's center recommended it (and mentioned that tickets on MLK day were only $5 (I think they are normally $15)) It was amazing! You...More
