History tends to repeat itself, which means there’s a good chance you’ll get run over by another war elephant.

- For $6, you get an individual admission (a $12 value).

Steps from Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, the National Constitution Center introduces audiences to the history and themes of the Constitution through interactive presentations and displays, which include a live multimedia show and taking the presidential oath of office. Special exhibit Art of the American Soldier depicts battle scenes from the past century, all drawn and painted by the hands of soldiers. Gaze into the evocative trenches of the Great War, the stark march toward the enemies of World War II, the malarial glaze of violence in Vietnam, and the portraiture and scenes of everyday life in the wars of the Gulf, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Fly solo through this art-packed citadel, or bring along the bulk of the family for an educational visit that's infinitely more interesting than eating page after page from a history book.
- which features 250 of these rarely-seen works of art, organized into sections such as: A Soldier's Life, A Soldier's Duty, A Soldier's Sacrifice, and The American Soldier. The exhibit depicts everyday military life from training and deployment to combat and sacrifice. The unique perspective from which this art has been created (through the eyes of America's soldiers) in many cases adds a deeply emotional and personal dimension to the work. – Giovanna Palatucci, National Geographic
- I always have a good time here, and would recommend it to anybody. They do seasonal exhibits that are fantastic and everything is well laid out and easy to maneuver. This is another home run by Philadelphia and Independence National Park. The Constitution Center is very affordable and beautiful. – Christian H., Yelp
