A truly moving experience to see the famous landmark with it's crack. The hall where it is displayed is well documented with historical notes regarding it's casting and travels. A must see for all ages.

The lines a little long to get in, but it did move quick enough. Glad we went in the summer and not in the cold. The best part is it's FREE! Seeing the bell is very historic and there's lots of displays with history on it. After taking pictures with the bell the tour was over pretty quickly. I was... More

Now in an enclosed structure, visit the Liberty Bell for patriotic reasons. The line is very long during peak season. Pics allowed at the Bell - but in an unorganized method. Time spent at the Bell - about 10 minutes - time in line was about 45 minutes. Additional timeline reading exhibits also within the structure. Not recommended for children... More

The lines are huge but if you find a time to walk through when it is not too crowded it is worth seeing. There are interesting exhibits along the way to keep you interested.

It was really nice to see a piece of history and how the Libery Bell represented people from numerous decades. Then after reading and seeing pictures it was nice to see the finale the Liberty Bell.

I was glad to finally have seen this but didn't appear to be anything special. A cracked bell that serves no use now.

Our 14 year old cousin from France was visiting and had one request for his sightseeing in Philadelphia...The Liberty Bell! I agree and if you don't have time to do the whole historic area, the Liberty is a must. Waited in a line outside but it moved and we entered after about a 15 minute wait. Inside there are plenty...

A must see if you are in Philly. Once you get past the parking and the line to get in you get to see the liberty bell and have a picture with it.

It is a really great take. They have all kinds of historical pieces and displays to learn tons more about the bell and its history. Really interesting, good for "kids" and kids.

I know it's a historical artifact, and yeah it's famous - but you will literally be waiting in line for a while to see a bell. Obviously the lines are smaller early in the mornings on weekdays, and it is free - but prepare to walk through several sections of information about its history, some large blown up photos of...
