The less brainwashed among us will find the introductory show "Freedom Rising" propaganda of the most insulting-to-the-intelligence kind. A clever concept (really) having an actress narrate, but oh.. the execution! Cue swelling patriotic music at the cheesy finale. I was cringing in my seat imagining how this self-congratulatory spiel would play to a foreign audience. Never was I so embarrassed to be an American.
The rest of the exhibit was OK but probably only if you're a history buff.
The building is gorgeous with a great view of Independence Hall. I can't help but think it was built more for its potential as a banqueting venue than anything else. The building was better than its contents.
