“Great venue for special events”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

I'll confess that I have not been to the Constitution Center for the touristy history tidbits that it was built for. I have been there for dozens of galas, festivals, and special events and it is awesome. It has tons of room but doesn't feel like the cavernous Convention Center. The location is convenient to SEPTA, PATCO, and has easy parking. Now I just need to do a visit and use it for it's intended purpose.

“This place should be FREE”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

Visited here during a company sponsored event. It is an inspiring venue, but it should be free of charge. If we want better citizens, we have to help educate them. Charging a family an arm and a leg to go here is not the way to accomplish that.

“Springstein is not worth it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

24.50 for junk about the Boss is really not worth the dough. Boring. Little insights. MTV videos is the highlight
