Wait times here can be long; school groups with noisy kids can sometimes dampen the experience....imagine a long hallway with the Liberty Bell at the end....you can get close to it, and pictures of the Bell (with you in it) aren't hard to do...a friendly National Park Service docent standing close by can answer any questions you may have.

Basically, it was fantastic seeing it finally in person but it was much smaller than I thought it was. Like, tiny compared to what I had in my mind. Anyways, I liked that it wasn't shielded behind glass so people could come up and see it up close :) Saw it MLK Day weekend, and it was free

What a brilliant display. Loved the historical background and stories prior to seeing the bell itself, which was more impressive than I had imagined. Well done National Parks !

Worth the trip for sure but allow about 15 minutes for this. Once you pass security there are some photos of the bell over the years and pictures of several famous people posing with the bell. there are some examples of some bell paraphernalia (like lamps, plate with image of the bell, etc). Nice photo op.

The place you will always remember. Whether young or old the city of Philly and the Liberty Bell will surprise you with things you never knew. Plan a day or two to take in this amazing city.

we visited in a Friday and were able to walk through without much of a crowd. Next day as we passed saw lots of crowds. Interesting walk through and yo see bell is fool but feels strange to see in this modern structure.

Visiting this part of american history is such a must when you seeing Philly. The museum that the Liberty Bell is encased in is really well done, with loads of information on history, slowly trailing you down to the bell

Took the family down to see the Liberty Bell today. The museum is well done, they take the security pretty serious in here, which is good to see. The Bell itself means allot to the country, as its a symbol of Liberty and what the country stands for. The Independence Hall is located in the background, makes for a great... More

I'm not very impressed with this area as it took my 30 min to line up to see the bell. In the building, there are information on history which you can certainly read on line.
