I was fortunate to be able to see the bell when she was on display in a pavilion years ago. I memory I will take to my grave. I was actually allowed to touch the bell and had my photo taken doing it. I am not sure if this is still allowed, but it is an absolute must for any... More

This is where we as a country started!!! All Americans should stop and be thankfully for are fore fathers.It always a surprise to me that so many of us take this freedom for granted.

Loved Independence Hall! It was great to hear about the signing of the Constitution and the National Parks Tour Guide was so informed and excited to share it all.

Tip! If during summer season reserve tickets online. We didn't know we could do this but found out the hard way. You have to go to the visitors center to pick up tickets. Also go early to beat the crowds especially at the liberty bell.

Was on a schedule so went online and pre-booked tour tickets through U.S. Park Service for $1.50 each that way I knew tickets would be available for our timeframe we wanted. If you do not want to pre purchase the tickets they are free (from the visitors center) but they can run out and you might not get the time... More

All who visit Philadelphia should take the time to visit the Liberty Bell and take the Independence Hall tour. The tour is FREE. You do need to go to the visitor's center and pick up a free ticket from the National Parks Service. The tours run every half hour and you will get a ticket for a specific time and... More

I've been here many times over the years, and it is an important place to visit when in Philadelphia. Sadly, terrorist threats and the necessary tight security have made accessibility to the historic rooms less intimate than 60 years ago. But do go! And take your children! They, after all, will not miss the fact that once upon a time... More
