The National Constitution Center is proud to display one of the 12 surviving copies of the Bill of Rights. The Museum of We the People is the first institution in Pennsylvania to exhibit this historic document to the general public. It has been preserved as part of The New York Public Library's renowned research collection for over 100 years. The Bill of Rights is displayed alongside a first edition Stone Engraving of the Declaration of Independence and a rare copy of the first public printing of the U.S. Constitution in the brand new George H.W. Bush Gallery.
The National Constitution Center presents John Marshall: Patriot, Statesman, Chief Justice, an exhibit that explores Chief Justice John Marshall's role within the early Republic, including his life as a soldier, lawyer, statesman, and Chief Justice.
The National Constitution Center will honor the 230th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution with a daylong celebration of the freedoms afforded to citizens by the Constitution--from fun, educational activities to timely constitutional conversations with federal judges, to an inspiring naturalization ceremony.
