Fantastic history lesson about the birth of our nation as well as a history lesson of present day. Spend time reading about the founding fathers and also about the heroes of today. Excellent museum in an historical area of Philadelphia.

Although late on a Sunday afternoon we were the only persons in this museum which was a shame as its extremely thought provoking. Each floor has interesting exhibits with each shwing the struggles that people have suffered. Worth visiting

This museum is modestly-sized, but filled with moving tributes to "everyday heroes." There are countless stories of people who fought to help others, hiding Jews during WWII, rushing into the World trade Center on 9/11, standing up for marriage equality, Sufferage, and scores of other...More
