December 2016 marked the 225th anniversary of the Bill of Rights, which the National Archives commemorated in part by developing a pop-up kiosk exhibit suitable for display in such venues as libraries, small museums, community centers, schools, and others. The exhibition was featured at more than 40 Kentucky schools, libraries, and museums and gave an in-depth look at each amendment and how it protects American citizens.
The exhibit featured facsimile documents, reproduction artifacts, interactives, and videos to encourage visitors to connect directly with the people, places, and events that marked the long history of the Bill of Rights.
