Saturday is Constitution Day, a celebration of one of the nation’s — and the world’s — most important documents.

According to the National Archives:

“On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created.”

We’ve found two places where you can get your own copy of the Constitution for free.

The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration

The federal agency that describes itself as “the nation’s record keeper” makes a transcript and images of the original Constitution document available for free on its website.

You can also see the original document in person — it’s on permanent display at the National Archives Museum in Washington, D.C., where admission is always free.

Hillsdale College

This small private school in Hillsdale, Michigan, is known for not accepting direct or indirect government funding.

It will mail you a pocket copy of the Constitution for free. It also includes the Declaration of Independence.
