Beautiful facility. It is free to see the bell. There are informative displays prior to the bell. You can go through quickly or slowly.

Interesting that the attached picture is not the liberty bell center, but Independence Hall across the street. There is no ticket required. You just walk in. There are exhibits if you wish to learn a lot about the history of the bell and its famous cracks. The setting of the bell itself is dramatic. Taking pictures is best done from... More

Okay, you have to see the Liberty Bell but you only need about 10 minutes to check the box. You arrive, wait in a short line, take a photo and leave.

As we went to go sight seeing the first spot you see by the Independence visitor center is the Liberty Bell Center. A very short line lets you walk into and through the museum on the way to the Bell. It is remarkable how close you can be for picture taking. Take the time to read the many historical and... More

The bell has an interesting history; however, it's just a cracked bell. It was free admission, but you had to go through a security check first The history walk-through was okay. I guess the bell would be more interesting if you actually lived in Philadelphia. My husband thought it would be bigger than it was. You cannot touch the bell... More

Loved reading up on the history of the Liberty Bell and then being able to see the actual bell with Independence Hall right behind it. Great for pictures too!

This a must see if you are looking for historic places. But nothing special. Long waiting, some photos and a small bell. Nothing impressive...

The center contains an exhaustive display of information about the history of the Liberty Bell. Those who chose to spend some time with the displays before or after seeing the Liberty Bell will be well rewarded for the effort.

The whole area around the liberty bell is really cool. It is a beautiful building in a very historic part of town. The bell itself is in it's own building, and if you are going at night it can only be seen through a window- however, day or night it is worth the trip!

I love the little museum leading up to the Liberty Bell. It shows what the liberty bell has meant/symbolized to so many different groups of people (from slaves to women) as they fought for freedom.
