You really can't go to Philadelphia and not see the liberty bell. Admittedly, I didn't really know much about it before but the Liberty Bell Centre tells you everything about the bell (I find it highly ironic it was made in England...) and then you can see it and take a picture as well. You'll probably not get one without... More

Went to see the Liberty Bell at 11am on Sunday morning. There wasn't much of a line; maybe 5 minutes to get in and past security. It was a quick visit overall, we were probably in and out in 15 minutes. Taking a photo in front of the Bell was nice...the exhibit about its history and symbolism was a bit... More

Before seeing the exhibit, we weren't sure what was so important about the Liberty Bell since it really wasn't rung in 1776. After this well done exhibit, we got it! It;'s the symbol of liberty throughout the world. The exhibit is right in the middle of the mall, with Independence Hall at one end and the Constitution Center at the... More

Being in the presence of the liberty bell is awe inspiring, but I expected a bit more. Before you actually get to the bell, you pass through an area that has data, pictures, etc. about the Liberty Bell. You can stand and read that if you'd like, and we did read a lot of it, but it was kind of... More

Who would have thought that a bell made so badly by its English maker could have become such a strong symbol for American Independence. This is well worth the visit if you have any sense of history. No crowds on a cold December morning but made to lift my greatcost above my waste in case I was carrying a musket,... More

You cant visit Philly without seeing the famous Liberty Bell. The visitor center is well laid out,with lots of interesting historical information about the Liberty Bell and the American Independence. It was really interesting and educational. Seeing Liberty Bell was well worth the visit, and to read about its great historical past and the pride of Philadelphia. Well preserved and... More
