"What Makes America Tick!" National Constitution Center Tip by ringleader

The Constitution was written and signed in Philadelphia more than 200 years ago. It is the foundation upon which all of America's laws are based, argued, and written. It is what makes our government tick!

This is the only museum in the country dedicated to the United States Constitution. Interactive exhibits, multimedia presentations, and live theater describe many stories associated with the Constitution. You can vote for your favorite president, take the Presidential Oath of Office, e-mail elected officials, and even choose to sign your name to the Constitution - or sign as a dissenter, explaining why you disagree with its principles (freedom of speech!)

Car Parking- Proceed through the light at 6th Street and turn right into the National Constitution Center parking garage.*
