David Eisner, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, says visitors won’t be charged extra to see the exhibit:

“This is a public service since we’re in partnership with the Army Center for Military History and we think this is a perfect time to let visitors view this exhibit just for the price of museum entry.”

The exhibit will also go on a national tour and there is also an online gallery for donated art from the public.
