"I am an educator and to me, the most important topic I teach is the Constitution. I believe that the National Constitution Center is doing a great job at fostering [constitutional] knowledge and education."
"The Constitution is the foundation of this country. The Center provides access to citizens and visitors to understand the document and the impact it has had on our country since its very early days"
"I love that every time I leave the building I feel even more patriotic and blessed for the sacrifices others have made for us."
"My visit reminded me that liberty is always worth fighting for."
"I am just in awe. There are educational things that get in your head. But the things like Freedom Rising get in your heart."
"An inspiring place."
"It works so well, in fact, that the National Constitution Center should be replicated in other cities, to be experienced by as many citizens as possible."
"Since opening in 2003, [the National Constitution Center] has put forward a vision of constitutional history both left and right have embraced."
The National Constitution Center is an interactive museum, national town hall, and civic education headquarters. Steps from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell in Historic Philadelphia, the Center is a nonprofit, nonpartisan institution devoted to the U.S. Constitution and its legacy of freedom.
