National Constitution Center, Philadelphia: 12 reviews and 25 photos
I was there for the opening of the National Constitution Center on July 4th, 2003 and unfortunately, the event was marred by a slight mishap with the frame of a stage that was constructed for the event. Many famous Hollywood actors, musicians and politicians were in attendance and my sister and I were standing on a distant lawn watching the ceremony. Apparently, they were trying to pull down a curtain, but the whole frame came down and injured a few people including the mayor of Philadelphia!! Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt.
The next day, we went to visit the place, but I wasn't overly impressed. The design of the building evokes images from the movie Gattaca. Not exactly warm and fuzzy. The exhibits consist mainly of multi-media educational shows. It costs $6 for adults.
