National Constitution Center

Located in Independence National Historical Park, the National Constitution Center is the first and only institution in America established by Congress to “disseminate information about the United States Constitution on a non-partisan basis in order to increase the awareness and understanding of the Constitution among the American people.”

The Constitution Center brings the United States Constitution to life by hosting interactive exhibits and constitutional conversations and inspires active citizenship by celebrating the American constitutional tradition. 

Special Exhibit: Back for a limited engagement, The National Constitution Center is bringing back American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition, its critically acclaimed exhibit that brings the story of Prohibition vividly to life. American Spirits originally debuted in 2012 and has since toured nationally. The immersive experience lets visitors trace how the temperance movement culminated in the 18th Amendment with Wayne Wheeler’s Amazing Amendment Machine, a 20-foot-long, carnival-inspired contraption; step inside a recreated speakeasy to learn the Charleston and explore the music, fashion, and culture that made the ’20s roar; and experience more than 100 rare artifacts including flapper dresses, authentic barware, temperance propaganda, and original ratification copies of the 18th and 21st Amendments. This exhibit is available for just an additional $3 more than the cost of general admission, now through July 31.

Tickets are available for sale online or at the Independence Visitor Center
