Interesting stop but the graveyard and church are a self guided tour. Their is no entrance fee but a donation box is present. Definitely worth a stop but you'll get out of it what you put into it.

The exterior cemetery was a museum by itself. Grave sites of Benjamin Franklin and other signers of the Declaration of Independence were there.

From the moment you walk in, you'll be in awe. The church is beautiful and peaceful. Very calm. You can sit in the pew that George Washington or Ben Franklin sat in. It's a thrill, I guarantee it.

It was cool to see where George Washington, Ben Franklin and Betsy Ross sat. Ben Franklin's grave is good to see too.

You would think a church would be open earlier in the morning, but sadly Christ Church is more of a tourist attraction anymore verses being an actually church. This is the only downside to visiting. The interior and exterior have been well maintained/restored. The request donations to keep up the church as well as selling knick-knacks in the entrance way.... More

This is a gorgeous church; I'm not sure if it is a hot tourist spot or not, but when we arrived on a late Saturday morning, there was no one else in the church. It is free to go in the church and look around, but donations are accepted on the way into the sanctuary. Plaques are on the building... More

Ok...so I'm a bit of a geek about such things but I get a real kick out of knowing I'm walking the same streets our Founding Fathers (and MOTHERS) walked. I love visiting Christ Church!!
