The National Constitution Center is the only museum honoring the U.S Constitution. This one of a kind place isn’t just a museum, as the Constitution isn’t just a piece of paper.
An experience like few others, you enter a circular theater where a multimedia award-winning production called Freedom Rising, brings to life the importance of our “living” document. An actor narrates while powerful images are projected on a 360 degree screen, telling the story of this revolutionary document from it’s inception through today.
Next, walk through an interactive journey of the Constitution. The center is filled like a treasure trove of our Nations history. Exhibits and artifacts range from Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s hat to Sandra Day O’Connor’s, the first female Supreme Court Justice’s, robe. You can stand behind the Presidental podium and take the oath of office or give a press conference. Even if you aren’t eighteen, you could cast your vote in a mock election. These are just a sampling of what the museum holds.
Then on to Signer’s Hall where forty-two life-sized bronze statues represent the thirty-nine delegates who signed and the three dissenters. Here I am with one of my top Signers, Ben Franklin.
I wish every American could participate in this enlightening experience. That it could travel to schools and teach our children.
