I had visions this would be about the creation of the Constitution. But it takes you through the years and every amendment. The Freedom Rising live theatre is very well done. The temporary exhibit on Alexander Hamilton is worth taking about 15 minutes to peruse.

This was a great stop. There is so much information that you cannot absorb all of it in the one visit. There is plenty for all ages and interactive areas as well. Be sure to see everything. Hamilton was being featured when we were there.

Statues of founding fathers in a room at their heights, so you can see good replicas of them. Of course, replicas of original documents, and a display of Hamilton with interesting facts about his life. A cool display of the time line of constitutional events...More

Very informative and educational experience. The theater-in-the-round show was a good way to start our day visiting various historic sites. Super convenient and well-priced parking. Park here, then go see everything.
