National Constitution Center Offers Back-to-School Special: Buy One Ticket, Get One Free

Back-to-school means new teachers, new friends…and new reasons to visit the National Constitution Center! Now through September 30, 2010, the Center invites visitors to buy one ticket and get one FREE (of equal or lesser value), to celebrate the end of summer and the start of the new school season.

With this special offer, visitors can clean out the summer cobwebs and freshen up on American history through the Center’s core exhibition, The Story of We the People, which tells the story of the U.S. Constitution through more than 100 interactive, multimedia features; the award-winning theater show “Freedom Rising;” and Signers’ Hall, which contains 42 life-size bronze statues of the delegates to the Constitutional Convention in 1787. In addition, visitors can enjoy Labor Day weekend activities from September 4-6; a Constitution Day celebration on September 17; the civic photography exhibition, Being “We the People,”: Afghanistan, America and the Minority Imprint, which is on display through September 26; and the world debut Art of the American Soldier exhibition, which opens on September 24.

Admission to the Center is $12 for adults, $11 for seniors ages 65 and over, and $8 for children ages 4-12. Active military personnel and children ages 3 and under are free.
