If you've ever watched National Treasure then you know that you have to see the Liberty Bell. The line grows quickly but it moves fast and you'll be inside in no time. The bell is smaller than I thought it would be but it's amazing to be looking at so much American history. There is a lot of information here... More

We enjoyed the historical aspect of this area and it's part of the hop on hop off bus tour. The first US Capitol and you can get an up and close picture with the Liberty Bell

We waited in line in the cold for a tour & loved seeing the rooms where the discussions took place to found our country BUT the tour should be longer and take you to ALL the buildings as those are extremely important and amazing too.

I didn't have much time to see the sights as I as there on business, but on a walk home from a yummy Szechuan restaurant, my colleague and I decided to stop at the hall. It was magnificent at night. The bell shined so bright and the pictures came out great.

While we were surprised that we had to go through the equivalent of airport security to get into the building with the Liberty Bell, it was definitely worth it to soak it in. I just wish you could touch the bell! (even though I understand why you cant!) Just dont bring any sharp objects in with you!

The Liberty Bell. The Constitution Center. Doe sit get any better for a history buff? It does make one proud to be an American.

It's a SITE and SIGHT you and your family won't soon forget. How much better to visit this symbol of America than just seeing a picture in a book. Living history at its best.

No charge for entry and a tour is included for free! It only took me 30 min to see both Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. A trip to Philly without seeing this amazing part of our nation's history is incomplete.

The Independence Hall Complex is more than just the Hall itself! There's also the buildings that housed the first Supreme Court, and the first Congress, beautifully arranged as the originals were. Each is very special, but, for my family, perhaps the most special feature of this historic place were the docents. Upon entry, a docent provides an overview of what... More
