I got in just barely before closing on a Wednesday and they still let me and a few others in, but I'd recommend going an hour before closing. Several interesting side exhibits before you get to the actual Liberty Bell. My only concern is I wish they would display the bell higher off the ground (on a pedestal maybe, or... More

Whether buy your tickets in advance or arrive early in line. If you want to get in, be sure to be there at least 45 min before closing time. Rude staff. Comprem seus ingressos com antecedência ou cheguem cedo na fila, pelo menos 45 min antes do fechamento.

This is a free must see attraction. It's a huge part of our history. As you walk through, you read about the struggles for liberty and the story of the bell also.

A must see in Philadelphia is Independence Park and the Liberty Bell. The grounds are spacious and historic buildings amazing. Guided interpreters take you back in history to a time where the echoes of Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson can be heard. There was a long line and wait to see the Liberty Bell however walk to the side of... More

You cannot visit the city without seeing the most famous attraction. It is amazing to think it has survived this long and it is a testament to American history ! Also it is free so you can contribute to charity after.

This area has been remodeled (a couple times) since my childhood visit and it is nicely done. Covered, with plenty of walk-through information. Photo-op of the liberty bell with Independence Hall in the background is classic. My family joked when I insisted we arrive at opening, but, this tip did not disappoint- no waiting. At all. As soon as we... More

Worth the trip / drive from New Jersey with my uncle. Had a good stroll and took pics. Watch out for dodgy looking characters eg pic pockets. Tea at the Hard Rock Cafe..!highly recommended!

Very good history location to visit. The most difficult thing was waiting in the security line. If you are planning on going I would recommend hitting this item before the huge crowds show up at noon. Pretty cool layout in the center and no one was that pushy when I was there. A must for history buffs.

The liberty bell center does a good job of providing a lot of information about about the liberty bell. Plus you get to see the liberty bell up close. The lines outside tend to look long but only take a few minutes. Inside people spread out and it is not crowded at all. Parking is expensive and hard to find... More

We just quickly stopped in, there was a little bit of a line but great to see if you don't have to wait too long.
