The National Constitution Center
The National Constitution Center, created by the Constitution Heritage Act in 1988, brings the U.S. Constitution to life through multimedia exhibitions, live performances, timely public programs, and dynamic educational resources. On July 4, 2003, the building opened in what has been called “America’s most historic square mile” because of the proximity to landmarks such as Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, and has attracted more than seven million visitors to date. The Center is America's first and only nonpartisan, nonprofit institution devoted to the Constitution, the most powerful vision of human freedom ever expressed. The Center’s mission is to illuminate constitutional ideals and inspire acts of citizenship.
