The Center’s main exhibition includes three signature attractions: Freedom Rising in the Kimmel Theater, The Story of We the People in the Richard and Helen DeVos Exhibition Hall, and Signers’ Hall.
Freedom Rising is a multimedia theatrical production with 360-degree projection, state-of-the-art sound and lighting, and a live actor who narrates the American quest for freedom. Guests will be inspired by this stirring, 17-minute journey through the extraordinary story of “We the People.”
The Story of We the People is a dynamic, interactive exhibition that illuminates America’s constitutional history through innovative exhibits, films and photographs, rare artifacts, and hands-on activities led by our education staff.
Signers’ Hall is one of the Center’s most popular and iconic attractions, where you can sign the Constitution alongside 42 life-size, bronze statues of the Founding Fathers.
The Vietnam War. Civil rights and women’s lib. MLK and RFK. Janis and Jimi. Laugh-In and love-ins. Bringing one of America’s most colorful, chaotic, culture-shifting years vividly to life, The 1968 Exhibit illuminates the power of “We the People” to exercise and expand our freedoms. Visitors will travel through 12 exhibition areas corresponding to the months of the year—as well as three lounge spaces (bean bag chairs included) inviting playful interaction with 1968’s most enduring and influential music, movies, fashions, and more. Whether you remember the year personally or discovered Hendrix online, The 1968 Exhibit will rock you.
