How cool is it that the visitors center can get you a free ticket for Independence Hall (which is also wonderful) and that you can use that free ticket to score you half price admission to this place? This place does have a fantastic live...More

I was just here a week ago, and it was amazing. The main exhibit area was interactive and had tons of information. There were many things you could do, including taking the oath of office, playing jeopardy, voting, and trying on a judge robe. It...More

The "We The People" presentation is helped a great deal by the live actor. In fact there could be a lot less lights and action in my opinion. The "Founders Hall" alone would rate a 5 for me. The amount of work and research that...More

Yes. You will wan to set aside about 2 hours for this at least. It is right across the street from the US Mint and Liberty Bell and 1 block away from Independence Hall. This was the best of the tours. So I would recommend... More
