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 called it “the best 17-minute civics lesson in the country.” It'll give you goose bumps!
  • Walk among 42 life-size bronze statues of the Founding Fathers in Signers’ Hall. One of the museum’s most popular and iconic attractions, Signers’ Hall brings to life the final day of the Constitutional Convention in the Assembly Room of the Pennsylvania State House, now known as Independence Hall.
  • 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.
  • The Center’s newest exhibit, The 19th Amendment: How Women Won the Vote, traces the triumphs and struggles that led to the ratification of the 19th Amendment and features some of the many women who transformed constitutional history—including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Alice Paul, and Ida B. Wells.
