This is a must see in your tour of Philadelphia. The tour guide we had was the best and had a booming voice that took you back to the colonial era he was talking about. The tour is great because of the story that went along with it and it allowed you to focus on all the history that took... More

I must say that this was incredible to see the liberty bell in person. There was a line to get in, but once in you are able to get pictures alone with the bell alone and without crowds. This is free to see and within the center is also a history lesson about the bell and the history to it's... More

We came around 9.30 on a Sunday morning and walked in - 30 minutes later Tour busses had arrived and the line was around the block. Visit is free and obviously it has the bell so you take photos etc... Honestly, the significance of the bell didn't really resonate with me, the exhibits were mildly interesting and then the ranger... More

We drive by thinking we would need to come back the next morning. However we found a parking space and only had a 5 min wait. Then the attendant said if we entered Independence Hall by 6:45 we could view the room where the Constitution was written without a ticket nor wait. Very interesting and no fees!

I was touched by what I learned as I went through and read about the history of the Liberty Bell. No American should miss this place. It's completely free and it will bring out the patriotism in you. And I learned things I did not know about the history of the Liberty Bell and what it actually stands for. It's... More

Anyone who has ever had a history class needs to see this. The line was long but moved along nicely, and the center is laid out well. How many places let you get up close to something this cool? Bring a camera, and see it up close, its well worth your time.

I was really touched by seeing the Liberty Bell. I didn't expect it to be so emotional. The line here moves really fast so don't be worried about that; however, we were there early in the morning, first thing, and it was great. Don't pass up reading all about it. I couldn't wait to see the bell itself so we... More

This facility is small and the lines are often very, very long. The first time I visited Philadelphia I took one look at the line standing out in the hot sun and decided there were other things I would prefer to do. This visit I stood in the line and was so glad I did. It was so much more... More

What can be said that hasn't been said already? The line seemed long to get in, but actually moved pretty quickly. Once inside I was surprised how interesting the walk down the hall was. The artifacts and history of the bell really gets you into the experience once you see it. The glass wall behind the bell is a beautiful... More

The line to get into the center was long but it moved rather quickly, certainly worth the wait. There isn't much to see inside the building but.... It is the Liberty Bell!
