The National Constitution Center is an interactive museum and a national town hall for constitutional dialogue, hosting government leaders, journalists, scholars, and celebrities for public discussions.

The nonpartisan institution is located on Independence Mall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and offers resources onsite and online. 

The center opened in 2003, joining other closeby historic sites and attractions such as Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.

The center was created by the Constitution Heritage Act in 1988, the act defined:

“The Center shall disseminate information about the United States Constitution
on a non-partisan basis
in order to increase the awareness and understanding of the Constitution
among the American people.”
