RAPID CITY (AP) — Rapid City's newest tourism attraction opened Sunday.

Founding Fathers Black Hills says it houses the world's only life-size sculpture of the painting "Declaration of Independence" inside a reproduction of the historic Philadelphia hall.

Visitors can see 47 original sculptures and listen to a presentation about the American Revolution leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. A replica of the Liberty Bell that was cast at the same French foundry as the original bell is scheduled to arrive soon.

The attraction is 6 miles south of Rapid City on the road to Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
