The Story of We the People, the National Constitution Center’s main exhibition, guides visitors through milestones in America’s history and reveals how the U.S. Constitution is as important today as it was in 1787.
Located in the Richard and Helen DeVos Exhibition Hall, the exhibition feature three concentric rings of interactive exhibits. The circular shape of the exhibition was chosen, in part, to reflect the enduring presence and influence of the U.S. Constitution.
Please note: Artifacts are rotated and subject to change.
Throughout The Story of We the People, visitors can take part in daily museum programs led by our education staff.
School groups will receive copies of our student guide, The Path to Responsible Citizenship. Guides are available for elementary, middle, and high school students.
The Center offers a variety of lesson plans, activities, and other educational resources to help you make the most of your visit. Plus, our exhibits and programs are aligned with state and national standards so you can connect your NCC field trip with your classroom curriculum.
