As part of "the Queen City Tour"

As a stand alone site to visit, it is quite compact. It has history and commemoration of firefighters, so it has interest. If you are walking Newport, KY stop by. It is open air.

We have never seen anything so huge. Amazing! We took pictures and our people look so small. It's worth taking a little walk to, plus there is a firefighter memorial site next to it and lots of beautiful architecture nearby.

This is a very cool bell and memorial. The isn't much signage, but look around and you'll find the facts about it. This is a great place for photos. I think it is worth 15-30 minutes of time to enjoy and explore.

The bell is kind of cool., how it was made, etc but it is in a little tower. Disappointing from the original publicly announced plans. The firefighter staues by it are really neat. It is a nice place for an outdoor celebration like July 4 so you can hear up lose the bell ring.

I used to live here and would walk by it everyday to work. Years went by before I ever actually realized it was a monument. There are to signs to it, its pretty much just a bell between a parking lot and a white castle. If you go, make sure its not night, lots of bars and drunks.

Very nice but has no signage explaining the meaning of the bell - have some 9/11 memorials there as well.

This was built for the year 2000 celebrations. It is the 3rd largest bell in the world. They ring it on occasion, it's pretty impressive.

The title of this review is complete; nothing much else can be said about it. Perhaps if I'd seen/heard the bell ring then I might have been more impressed.

It is just worth quickly stopping and seeing. All it is is a large bell. So don't expect much. But it is just a nice quick little stop.

Today the kids and I had a scavenger hunt in Newport, KY. First stop, the world peace bell in Newport. First we viewed tit from the road and read the statement below, then we went inside. You can gather some paperwork and take the elevator upstairs to the viewing platform. This is where I was blown away! The gentleman that... More
