National Constitution Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The National Constitution Center (NCC) was established by Congress through the Constitution Heritage Act of 1988 as an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization. The NCC was established to increase awareness and understanding of the US Constitution, the Constitution's history, and the Constitution's relevance to our daily lives so that "We the People" will better understand and exercise our rights and our responsibilities.
The National Constitution Center is the first ever museum honoring and explaining the Constitution. The Center is located in Philadelphia on the Independence Mall, joining two of our nation's greatest symbols of freedom - Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.
