Nicely kept building that is in the colonial time period. The building is a standing frame from that time, but being in the rooms where our nation was founding gives one goose bumps

Being from the Philadelphia area, one would think we'd get tired of this place. But it holds so much history, we have gone back several times, as children, as a couple, and now, with our son. There is so much to this place, and each time, we learn something new. It's a special experience to go during the Welcome America festival, which culminates with Independence Day each year!

I'm not a fan of the legend of the Constitution, because it has been made obsolete by the daily desecration by politicians. However, the Old City is good for walking around, which I didn't have time when I studied in Philly.

You can feel the history just walking in the door. The tour was very interesting and fun.
