This is one of the most inspiring museums I have ever seen. They have a room with life sized bronze statutes of the men that signed the Constitution from GW to Ben Franklin to James Madison and Alexander Hamilton. Not to be missed!

We really enjoyed this museum and all of the exhibits. Great history of the constitution as well as our nation to current times. We loved the “Hall of Constitution signers”. Also, very neat gift shop! We visited during the Hamilton exhibit, which was small, but...More
