National Constitution Center

Constitution Day, September 17, commemorates the formation and signing of the US Constitution on that date in 1787.

The National Constitution Center is the first and only nonprofit, nonpartisan institution devoted to the US Constitution. The Center strives to illuminate constitutional ideals and inspire active citizenship through a state-of-the-art museum located on Independence Mall in Philadelphia.
