National Constitution Center

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by talpa4980 on December 4, 2006

This is one of the newer attractions in the city, located near the main visitor center, and is definitely something to check out. The first thing you will notice when you enter is the display of all 50 state flags of the US. It's interesting to walk around and see what they look like. You will probably be surprised to see what your own state flag looks like if you don't know beforehand. There is a theater that is used for an A/V presentation towards the rear. One piece of advice is to show up plenty early, purchase your tickets, then walk around the Center and look at the exhibits. This will save you some time waiting in line just prior to the show. The other main portion of the Center is called the Hall of Signers. This is a rather unique exhibit, as it houses life-size statues of all the signers of the Constitution. There are also several computer terminals around the Hall where you can learn more about the people who signed.
