Independence Hall actually is small complex of three buildings. The main one (in the center) is where the Declaration of Independence was signed. The one to the west is where Congress met, after New York and before Washington, D.C. The one to the east is where the Supreme Court sat until it was relocated to Washington, D.C.

It's moving to be in the place so much of our country's foundation was set. The guide offered interesting facts. We bought the $1.50 tickets on line the day before, but would have been fine just walking in during the off-season. No need to arrive 45 minutes ahead during the winter. Go to the Liberty Bell between picking up up... More

Each of the National Park Service rangers writes his or her own presentation. The one who guided us through Independence Hall was excellent, starting with a booming voice that was easy for the large group of visitors to hear.

To be truthful, I havent been to Independence Hall in a number of years.... but really, how much does one expect it would change?? To be able to see the Declaration of Independence in person , alone is worth the trip to see it if you are in Philly.... then there is the Liberty Bell! Did someone say "CheeseSteak"??

Duh. If you can't appreciate the significance of this place, then you shouldn't be traveling to look at historical places. The tour guides are spectacular and very well-informed. A+.

This was a repeat visit for me but was still awe inspiring. It was wonderful to see so many people there, especially the families. I will definitely go again. Visiting Independence Hall reminds you of the challenges and victories of Americans in the creation of our country.
