The New York Public Library Announces Historic Agreement To Display Original Copy Of The Bill Of Rights

According to the agreement, the document will be displayed alternately by the Library and Pennsylvania equally for the first six years. After that, the Library – which is responsible for care of the document – will have it 60-percent of the time that it can be displayed.

The document will be on display at the National Constitution Center starting in fall 2014 until 2017, when it will travel back to New York City to The New York Public Library's landmark Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street.

"The New York Public Library is one of our nation's great cultural institutions and a living symbol of the First Amendment's protection of a free press, which makes it a perfect place for the Bill of Rights to be displayed," said Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. "I hope that New Yorkers – and our visitors from across the country and around the world – will take the opportunity to visit the Library and see the document that made America the freest nation on earth."

"This is a milestone moment for the National Constitution Center as we celebrate our 10th anniversary and look towards the next decade as the museum of 'We the People,'" said National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen. "We are thrilled to be able to offer visitors the opportunity to experience one of America's founding documents up close."
