Great phrases on the outside of the entrance. A very nice historical experience. I enjoyed the entire trip to Philadelphia!

We parked in a garage for $7 - 12 hours (Sunday) a block west of the visitor center, and roamed all around for about nine hours. Loved the visitor center (new since 1998 for me), both free movies (30 and 20 minutes), new(ish) Liberty Bell museum and exhibit, of course Independence Hall and Square tours, etc. Bummed it was $10...

It is so real, you are literally standing where history was made. You can almost hear George, Ben, Tom and the rest of the crew hashing out the Declaration of Independence.

We spent the day walking the area and visiting many locations on the map. Staff was helpful and really took time to talk with the kids and answer questions. Loved visiting these amazing places where our country was shaped.

I liked the guided visit and the talk on the Country history. I loved everything, since the old and original furniture, to the sound of the piano over there. The cracked bell is a valuable symbol you want to be pictured around!

Regardless of what you think of the lines, crowds, or the brevity of the tour (25-30 minutes), you cannot see what you can see here anywhere else in the entire world. As an American citizen, being able to stand and look at the Genesis of the nation is utterly meaningful and wonderful.

We were in Philadelphia for 3 nights and we really enjoyed seeing Liberty Bell! It's a lot bigger then I thought it would be. There's lovely story boards explaining the history of the bell leading up to the display at the end of the exhibition hall. A great day out for all the family :)
