My daughter and I were visiting PA while being in the area for a funeral. A stop by the Liberty Bell and surrounding monuments was a secondary wish next to finding some good food in Philadelphia. We found out that it was free to visit the Liberty Bell Center and go on the Independence Hall Tour. It took about 15... More

Due to a heavy dose of jet lag, we accidentally arrived at the Liberty Bell Centre at 08:55, 5 minutes before it was scheduled to open. A queue had already built up but we were let in pretty much on the hour without any wait at all. You do not need tickets to enter and entry is free. Getting there... More

OUTSTANDING...What else is there to say about the Liberty Bell and the history it represents. This is a must see venue. It is great to see people from all parts of the world and our own USA citizens visiting here. We only hope they and our now citizens of the USA support the GOD given freedoms over government overreach.

As a huge American Revolution fan, this was definitely on my list, and it was so cool to be so close to this amazing piece of history! The museum is nice, and the bell is exactly what you would expect!

Originally cast in London, the bell cracked on its first use. Two local artisans, who had no prior experience casting bells, recast it twice. When they were finished, no one was pleased with the tone the bell made when it was rung. Nonetheless, it was hung in the state house. Abolitionists, suffragists and other groups have adopted the Bell as... More

The new building that houses the Liberty Bell is light years better than the old building! This is high class. There is a lot of information boards coming in which are cool, but just work your way past them and for sure - see the Liberty Bell - the symbol of the Declaration of Independence!

I wanted to see this because it's part of history. But in the end, it all boiled down to a picture beside a bell (for us and most everyone else around us) - - The Liberty Bell, roped off, with a grumpy park Ranger standing in front of it, saying , "Alright, you all need to BACK UP!" - -... More

The line was not very long first thing in the morning, so we did this before our 10:30 tour of Independence Hall. Taking pictures was a little challenging since everyone was trying to take pictures, but it was interesting just to see a piece of American history up close.

The Liberty Bell Center was crowded. We waited approx 15 minutes I line , but it was worth it. Once inside you follow a long hallway filled with information items related to the Liberty Bell . Once through the maze you're able too see it. In the past I understand one could touch it, but not anymore .

excellent presentation of colonial history. loved the fact that entrance was free. The public parking structure across the road was wildly expensive though. I paid $24 for 45 minutes!
