Liberty Bell Lines are long in the afternoon with a tendency to be shorter in the early morning and during rainy weather. Be warned that there is not much to see as the entire exhibit is static. Go see it so you can say you did and be done.

No doubt this place is rich in history. I do remember the time when the Liberty Bell was not kept in a glass building. Everyone could see it freely. I guess we have to protect our history nowadays. The sad part is you have wait for hours in line in order to take a look at the Liberty Bell. Sure... More

The line to see the liberty bell was soooooo long every time we went to try to see it. We discovered, though, that of you go into that park behind the building, you can get a pretty decent view. I feel like you can't visit Philly without seeing the bell!

However, the connections to ending slavery and rights for women was really meaningful in the exhibit.

Obviously a must see!! On a trip to Philly you have to do some historic site seeing. This and the Liberty Bell are close by to each other and worth two stops. Great for pictures too!

It's hard to explain what seeing the Liberty Bell meant to me. I got chills when I rounded the corner and saw it. You are able to get very close, which is awesome. There are great views of Independence Hall from the windows behind the Bell, which just adds to the ambiance. There is a nice exhibit on the history... More

Very interesting history. Lots to do and see in the area as well. Make sure you have some time to wait in line as well as view the museum. The wait time can take awhile.
