About Amending America

This exhibit celebrates the 225th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the first 10 amendments added to the Constitution of the United States. Visitors will learn about how these amendments came to be and how each protects our citizens. The exhibit is included with admission and will be on display January 24 – March 16, 2017.

 

Amending America: The Bill of Rights was created by the National Archives and Records Administration, Washington, D.C. The national tour is presented in part by AT&T, History®, Seedlings Foundation and the National Archives Foundation. The Sixth Floor Museum is partnering with the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum to bring this special exhibit to Dallas.
