The best part was a monologue play in the center on the history of the constitution. Must visit when in Philly. All museums are located close to each other at walking distance.

Very enjoyable and educational layout. The video presentation and the presenter was excellent. I would go back when having more time to wander at leisure.

There are many counties founded on the basis of theory. It’s something the USA shares with the Soviet Union. The early days after winning independence were “now what?” Or perhaps even “another fine mess you got me into Stanley”. Nevertheless they got through it. Massively...More

With several choices on how to spend one afternoon in Philie, I chose the National Constitution Center. The street signage isn't good, so get accurate directions. On this Monday afternoon there was no crowd. The Freedom Rising show was a bit schmaltzy. The interactive exhibits...More

The opening presentation was done very well in the theater but things went downhill after that. Hundreds of children made the main exhibit hall so noisy that you couldn't concentrate on any one thing. The Hamilton exhibit saved the day.
