This is a vacant lot which used to have several historical buildings, some designed by Frank Furness, to make room for this ridiculous tourist trap.

Book tickets in advance or be prepared to queue ! The story from the raiders range from excellent to the odd one who you feel is just doing their job which is a slight disappointment. It is marvellous to see where history was made !

Walking around and looking at the buildings and reading the signs I couldn't help but feel how amazing it was that the most famous Americans of all time were here hundreds of years ago creating the greatest country in history. This is worth a visit.

One of those things that everyone needs to see, but once you've seen it, that's all there is to it. The Ben Franklin printing demonstration was kind of neat....

The park is spacious, and as we visited in April, it is beautiful as well with the flowers in bloom. The visitors center is helpful, and everything is free.

Our tween daughter has discovered a love of all things historical. The historical park allows you to explore the things that interest you and for the most part you can go your own pace.

The whole family enjoyed touring Independence Hall. We were lucky to be allowed up on the second floor of the building--seems this isn't always the case from spring to fall.

Just the history of the entire United States, starts here. There's just so much, in walking distance, it will take a couple of days to cover it all. There's horse buggy rides to see the sights or you can walk all day, and enjoy the truck lunches, or pop into PLENTY of pubs or restaurants. Enjoy the architect and beautiful... More

Our family enjoyed the many different ways the park offered the historical experience. The printing press is a must do with the kids. The park covers alot of ground so make sure properly dressed for weather with good walking shoes. The museums are not great for real little ones... our youngest (9) could appreciate most everything. Make sure you get... More
