Took family into Philly for a quick visit to Olde City. Walked into Christ Church while a school group was getting a presentation about the church. Sat in the Franklin pew. Great talk by the staff. Free to visit . Don't forget to leave a donation.

We visited this historic church to touch base with the faith of our founding fathers. The sanctuary is open and full of natural light, very serene with clean, classic lines. A lovely spot to pause for reflection.

This is a fabulous site. The church has been well-preserved, and it has such historical significance. I definitely recommend a visit. Please stay for a chat with the docents there, too, and get the whole picture.

I was aware of its place in the history of Philly as I had ancestors who attended there at the time of the Revolution... More

It was nice to visit this historical church without cost only a suggestion of donation. Visiting the cjurch can be combined with other sights and there are many useful signs around pointing one in the right direction/
