National Constitution Center

The National Constitution Center is an organization that seeks to expand awareness and understanding of the United States Constitution and operates a museum to advance those purposes.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the museum was held on September 17, 2000–213 years after the original Constitution was signed. On July 4, 2003, it was opened and the National Constitution Center joined other notable sites and iconic exhibits in what has been called "America's most historical square mile" because of the proximity of historical landmarks such as Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.

The institute's theater presentation is Freedom Rising which explains the history of the U.S. Constitution, and how the definition of "We the People" has expanded over time.

The main exhibit hall presents a chronology of constitutional history featuring artifacts and original documents, interactive exhibits based on the preamble to the Constitution, and "talk backs" and ways to discuss the Constitution.

Other exhibits are dedicated to the right to vote and divisive issues such as intelligent design or the death penalty.

"Signers' Hall" features life-sized, cast-bronze sculptures of the 39 signers of the Constitution and the three dissenters.
