National Constitution Center

525 Arch Street, Philadelphia, 19106, PA

Right now, there are attraction blurbs all over the Internet (this Web site included) that start with, “No trip to [city name] would be complete without a visit to [attraction name].” While many of those introductions are true, perhaps none are as true as this:

No trip to Philadelphia would be complete without a visit to the National Constitution Center. This museum is dedicated solely toward expanding the awareness, understanding and comprehension of the United States Constitution — the most important document in the history of America.

Appropriate for all ages, the National Constitution Center entertains even the youngest members of the family through interactive exhibits, rare artifact displays, hands-on activities and even live performances — all to help illustrate the profound importance of the Constitution.

If you’re looking to inspire, teach and entertain your children — all in one stop — you need not look further than this popular Philadelphia attraction.
