The birth place of an Independent United States and the location where the Declaration of Independence was signed. As a historical building of global importance, we found the tour very interesting. The rangers are excellent and willing to offer stories about the characters who were involved with the formation of the early USA. After visiting Philly we moved on to... More

Just breathing in the air in the hall takes you back a couple of hundred years when it all started. It is thrilling to see. The area in the vicinity, particularly the park, one can imagine the founding fathers walking around planning our future. So much to see.

We had a couple people ask if they could help taking our picture with the family. The staff also knew about history and was helpful with our questions.

Although its been moved to its current location for security its a Phildelphia Must See! Only takes 10 minutes, its easy to enter and the historian there will give you a great little tour and history lesson. The grounds around it are great to just sit and hang out! its within walking to plenty of historical building and parks. Parking... More

A great experience learning and viewing History! The Liberty Bell and the history! Best place, to me, to purchase Liberty Bell memorabilia was at the Reading Terminal, a Chocolate Liberty Bell!

Definitely worth taking the tour, best of all it is free but you need to get tickets ahead. The guide was very informative and gave an in depth presentation of our American History. Amazing what occurred in Philly before and after the Revolution. A must see.

This was a great tour that showcases the history of a lot of different buildings and historical sites in Philadelphia. The tickets are free, but you should go to the visitor center in the morning to pick them up. (It's only a short walk to the hall from the visitor center.) The tour is about 45 minutes long and has... More
