Highlights

  • Freedom Rising, a stirring, 360-degree theatrical production, takes you on a journey from America’s founding to the present day. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor calls it “the best 17-minute civics lesson in the country.” It'll give you goose bumps!
  • Take the Presidential Oath of Office. Do you solemnly swear to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution? Be sworn in as the next president of the United States at this fun, interactive exhibit.
  • Step up to the American National Tree, a towering display of touch-screens that introduces visitors to 100 individuals who made an impact on our constitutional history. There are several famous faces, but you’ll discover many unsung American heroes too.
  • Explore American Treasures: Documenting the Nation’s Founding, an intimate look at the path the Framers took to create the U.S. Constitution and secure the Bill of Rights.
  • Explore Civil War and Reconstruction: The Battle for Freedom and Equality, the first exhibit devoted to exploring how constitutional clashes over slavery set the stage for the Civil War, and how the nation transformed the Constitution after the war to more fully embrace the Declaration of Independence’s promise of liberty and equality.
