This is a beautiful building. However, the displays were focused on the unaware. There was no depth in the presentations. The monologue presentation was simplistic. The supposed Hamilton display had little of interest. A few unreadable original documents. Overall, disappointing.

on the outside of the building is a huge multi story banner advertising the hamilton experience. You are expecting a building filled with history and interesting exhibits and films. When you walk in, it is a vast multi story space of nothingness. There is also...More

Really great museum for kids and adults--lots of interactive stuff. The Hamilton exhibit itself is very small, but Hamilton-related activities and info can be found through the whole museum floor.

$14 per adult, $10 for our boy. A pretty good visit, and we stayed for about 2 1/2 hours on a Wednesday (and wasn't crowded). Loved the live show in the theater, and the signers exhibit featuring life-size statues of all signers of the US...More

The Freedom Rising presentation provides a rousing start to visit this surprising museum. Surprising because of the creative number of exhibits they came up with around the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and American history. There are lots of short movies and interactive displays, and some...More

Located just a couple blocks from the Liberty Bell....and worth a couple hours of your time. The film/show is a must! The signing room full of statues was amazing as well. This is a well laid out museum, but you need some time to read...More
