June 21, 2013 - National Constitution Center, Philadelphia

Philadelphia is also fondly known as the City of Brotherly Love and many bus rental passengers to this city will soon find it a place that gives one a feeling of being really comfortable and at home in many of the places of interests. If you are one who are into historical museums or specialty museums, you will really enjoy a trip to the National Constitution Center at 525 Arch Street, Independence Mall, Philadelphia.

Rent a bus with some friends and make your way to the National Constitution Center – said to be the only first yet independent and nonprofit institution that is dedicated to the U.S. Constitution and the heritage of freedom the country fights for and enjoys. It is quite easy to locate this museum as it is just about 2 blocks away from the Independence Hall.

Currently on exhibit at the National Constitution Center is “The 60s” and this will continue until early September 2013, and if you were a kid during this period of time, walking through the displays, you will recall many of the great things that happened back then. Bring along your children with you in one of the Philadelphia rented bus and let them see for themselves how things were back in the 60s and you may even be able to recount some of your own memories to share with them too. Who knows, it could turn out to be quite a time of great laughter for everyone as you share your funny memories of your childhood in the 60s with your children!

As you enter the National Constitution Center, do not miss watching the Freedom Rising presentation – it will help you to understand and appreciate the exhibits that you will soon see inside. Due to past experience, you may even find our Philadelphia bus driver suggesting that you give yourself at least a couple of hours to spend at the museum, so as not to rush through the displays and exhibits as well as touring the place in a relaxed and leisurely pace.

If you are keen on taking photos during your visit, please note that photography and video are not allowed in the museum exhibit areas, but you are allowed to use your cameras at the Signers’ Hall, where they have forty two life-sized bronze statues of the 39 delegates who signed the Constitution and three of the dissenters. One other thing that we would always tell our rented bus passengers is that if they should get hungry after or during the tour in the museum, they can always go and grab a bite at the Delegates’ Café located within the museum during museum hours.
