The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia inspires citizenship as the only place where people across America and around the world can come together to learn about, debate, and celebrate the greatest vision of human freedom in history, the U.S. Constitution. As the Museum of We the People, the Center brings the Constitution to life for visitors of all ages through interactive programs, exhibits, rare artifacts, and more. Admission includes access to the Center’s main exhibit, The Story of We the People, which illuminates America’s constitutional history; the signature multimedia, theatrical performance of Freedom Rising presented in the Sidney Kimmel Theater; and the iconic Signers’ Hall, where visitors can sign the Constitution alongside 42 life-size, bronze statues of the Founding Fathers.

Please note that teens under 15 must be accompanied by an adult when visiting the National Constitution Center.
