Rule of Law &
John Marshall


The John Marshall Center for Constitutional History & Civics, founded in 1987 and located at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture, preserves and honors John Marshall’s judicial legacy by engaging and educating the public about the rule of law under the Constitution, bringing civics, scholarship, and conversation to our classrooms and communities.

We invite you to join us at the Center! Read our digital brochure for a quick overview of our civics education program, Justice in the Classroom, our new civics series, PopCiv, our impact, and ways to get involved.
