I visited the Constitution Centre for an afternoon and enjoyed it very much. The lady on the front desk was clearly unhappy at her work and made no effort to interact or give any guidance given I was one of their few guests that afternoon....More

We hadn't been to the center for quite a while, so went on Sunday. Wanted to see the Hamilton exhibit. It was interesting but smaller than I expected but worthwhile. One thing of interest was the plaque about the incorrect history that is portrayed in...More

Go early or go later, when the school groups aren't there. The exhibits are great -- especially the Alexander Hamilton exhibit!

Our teen really liked the Freedom Rising presentation, and my wife enjoyed the many videos by the History Channel and the chronological order of the museum. The life size statues of the signers were cool. Strangely, though, the Constitution itself is not well addressed. This...More

I had visions this would be about the creation of the Constitution. But it takes you through the years and every amendment. The Freedom Rising live theatre is very well done. The temporary exhibit on Alexander Hamilton is worth taking about 15 minutes to peruse.

This was a great stop. There is so much information that you cannot absorb all of it in the one visit. There is plenty for all ages and interactive areas as well. Be sure to see everything. Hamilton was being featured when we were there.

Statues of founding fathers in a room at their heights, so you can see good replicas of them. Of course, replicas of original documents, and a display of Hamilton with interesting facts about his life. A cool display of the time line of constitutional events...More

This is certainly a most impressive Center and the staff were welcoming and could not have been more helpful. We began our tour with the “Freedom Rising” presentation and followed the suggested route thenceforward. The visit certainly added to our knowledge of the constitution, but...More
