Visited and waited about 10 minutes. Interesting history as you wind through . Bell was at the end and was very nice. Learned a few new things. Worth the visit. Also is free.

Let me be honest and say that my response might be different if I was American and therefore had had a vested interest in the history etc. There was a 20+ minute wait in the rain. This was primarily down to the need to check all bags etc. there was some interesting history around about the bell and then the... More

After standing in line for 15 minutes we entered and followed the path to read about the history of the Liberty Bell which was okay. At the end was the bell itself and is there an oportunity to take a picture. Entrance is free but the stupid thing is that the bell isn't the original one...

I visited the Liberty Bell Center in Philadelphia last weekend. It was a very interesting experience. I'm not crazy about the architectural design of the building but what's inside it is first rate. For those who just want to see the Bell, take some pictures and leave, it's totally okay to do just that. After entering just head straight down... More

The Liberty Bell is one of our nations great icons. This exhibit, which is free and quick to take in, is well worth the visit. The exhibit explains the history of the Liberty Bell itself, then take you through the Bell over time as a symbol of liberty in different contexts over time. Finally, you end up with the Liberty...

This is a short, well put together exhibit, and a chance to learn about the history of not only the Liberty Bell, but the development of the U.S. Constitution and formation of democracy in the States as we know it. Pictures with the bell at the end are usually easy, and there are no real restrictions.

Definitely a must-see if visiting Philly. It's easy to do a photo search on it, but to see it in person is another thing. If you don't go into the exhibit exactly (which I'd recommend doing, it isn't too huge but it's worth it), you can see if from the glass window pane. Either way, you get to see it... More

A very nice center, modern and large and airy. The exhibits and information provided are very interesting. The Liberty Bell itself is super awesome. Take a moment, take a seat on one of the window ledges, and just appreciate it. Loved it.
