We tried to get tickets online, in advance of our trip to Philly but they were "sold out". When we arrived we walked past and the sign out front said no tickets required so we jumped in line and waited to see the bell for free. If you are going to do this you need to get there early as... More

You can't visit Historic Philadelphia without seeing The Liberty Bell. Yes, the lines might be long but it is well worth the wait. Once you get into the museum there is so much history to read and see about the Liberty Bell and how much it means to American History. It is really quite amazing. Our children, even the wee... More

No visitor to the historic city of Philadelphia should leave without a visit to the most recent home of the Liberty Bell. It shares a significant place in the founding of our country and the battles to free ourselves from the tyranny of English rule. It remains a symbol of those battles as well as our containing strive for liberty... More

Don't miss the introductory exhibition which celebrates the many ways in which the Liberty Bell has been appreciated and honored in past years.

Do not miss this fantastic symbol of our country's freedom and liberty. You cannot help but be moved as an American as you view the beautiful displays that incorporate modern leaders, such as the Dalai Lama, MLK, and Nelson Mandela, who used the symbol of our freedom as an example for others. The sight of recent immigrants proudly posing in... More

Taken way back in time with historical facts about the bell. The Q line moved quickly, good lighting for photos.

The line may look long, but moves quickly. There is much info on freedom of all Americans including African and Native Americans, and women. The park ranger at the bell gave an inspiring, heartfelt talk.

It was nice to be able to see this up close and be able to take a picture with the liberty bell. Just keep in mind, that you're likely going to have to wait on a line for a bit in order to see this!

the outside exhibit is very nice, interesting and has the personal touch more than history stories that you can find on line everywhere. however, the wait time to enter and see the inside and the liberty bell itself wasn't worth it. with all due respect- it's just a bell. we waited about 10 minutes and the line didn't even moved...

I am a student of American history. I like to know how the country formed and about the people who helped make it happen. This is a well kept National Park site and very informative. In my opinion, there is not a lot to learn about the bell because you learn about this in school. The isie provides more detail... More
