  • This place is worth every dollar. There is a fantastic actor monologue in the theatre. A video of Ben Stein answering constitutional amendment questions. The state's in order of inclusion in the union. See soldiers tents, learn about Henry box Brown. You will easily spend 2 hours here.
  • The Constitution Center is located in Old City near Independence Hall. It is extremely well done and work the trip. It starts with a combination live actor/multimedia presentation. When that is finished you exit into the museum itself where to learn not just the history of Constitution but hope it continues to be interpreted to this day. There is also an excellent exhibit on Civil War Reconstruction on the first floor.
