The National Constitution Center To Unveil New Presidential Artifacts Just In Time For Election Season And July 4th
As the heat of election season approaches and July 4th is even nearer, the National Constitution Center gives us a better glimpse at the lives of our presidents, from George Washington to President Obama.
Starting June 29, the center’s main exhibition, The Story of We the People, will feature 30 presidential artifacts from collections across the country.
Visitors can experience the unique personal lives of our presidents through items from Bill Clinton’s tenor saxophone to Franklin Roosevelt’s fedora as well as learn about the voting process. Historic voting machines will also be on display, including a Palm Beach County voting booth from the controversial 2000 election.
In addition to the new artifacts, the center encourages both onsite and online visitors to participate in Address America: Your Six-Word Stump Speech, among other election-related programming.
These artifacts will only be on display until the end of the year so don’t delay!
