“America's most interactive history museum”
The National Constitution Center is the first and only institution in America established by Congress to “disseminate information about the United States Constitution on a non-partisan basis in order to increase the awareness and understanding of the Constitution among the American people.” The Constitution Center brings the United States Constitution to life by hosting interactive exhibitions and constitutional conversations and inspires active citizenship by celebrating the American constitutional tradition. Our non-partisan mission is best expressed in our three goals: to serve the nation and the world as the Museum of We the People, a national Headquarters for Civic Education, and America’s Town Hall. We illuminate the constitutional debates that affect the lives of all Americans by hosting constitutional conversations on Independence Mall in Philadelphia and across a range of media platforms, and we inspire active citizenship by celebrating the American constitutional tradition. Our three goals can be summarized in three words: Visit. Learn. Debate.
One of the best and most interactive museums I've visited. The exhibits are all meant to make visitors think and talk about the influence of the Constitution in our culture and lives. I've been three times and always leave feeling a 200 year old piece of law is alive, exciting, and cool.
I would come back just for this museum! I learned so much. If we had more time I could spend the whole day there.
