With the nomination of Samuel Alito Jr. to the Supreme Court and the continuing national debate over the types of judges best suited to interpret our founding document, this is a great time to visit Philadelphia’s National Constitution Center. Begin your tour with a stirring multimedia presentation featuring a live actor describing the creation of our Constitution and its enduring principles. Visitors can also take the presidential oath of office or even decide a Supreme Court case. And the facility, which sits on the Independence Mall complex, doesn’t shy away from our nation’s more questionable moments. Details on historical attempts to justify constitutional support for slavery and FDR’s efforts to pack the Supreme Court with justices friendly to his New Deal policies are here. On Jan. 18 the center is hosting “An Evening with Justice Stephen Breyer,” during which he’ll discuss his book, Active Liberty. For reservations, call (215) 409-6700.
