A stunning view of the founding of our country. Not to be missed. Independence hall is well maintained and the guides provide an excellent narrative.

Loved seeing the sights again. You get a slice of American History while you tour some of Philadelphia's historical sites/artifacts. Definitely worth a trip

Enjoyed this piece of history. The bell is situated so that many people can view it at one time. Nice surroundings with lots of history.

A must visit to the most historic square mile in U.S. History. You must visit the Visitors Center to get your timed ticket to visit Independence Hall. The Liberty Bell is free to view, but try to go when there is less traffic (early morning on weekdays).

The overall historical aspect was great. My kids loved seeing the remains of the 1st Presidential Quarters that were on display. It was like history coming alive with all the movies playing, artifacts, pictures, etc. The only dislike was the security check point inside the building that the Liberty Bell was housed. It felt as if we were going through... More

This park is right next to the Liberty Bell display so it is a must if you plan to see the Liberty Bell.

This location is a must see! My visit included Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and the gift shop. It was very memorable as I got to see the room where America's independence was declared. It's free to go to Independence hall but you have to secure a ticket at the entrance before a ranger comes and starts the tour. I... More

There is so much to see in this park and the surrounding areas that bring you into the world of Colonial Pennsylvania. Independence Hall was the best, and an honor to stand in the very same room where the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were signed.

Seeing the actual Liberty Bell is awe inspiring. The Docents are very knowledgeable and available for questions. Plan for a day in the park to see all the buildings.
