The Liberty Bell does not Toll, but I could Hear IT.

We all know the Liberty Bell from very early in our studies as children, but when actually sees it, I swear I could hear it tolling that a new country was created. You have to... read more

We all know the Liberty Bell from very early in our studies as children, but when actually sees it, I swear I could hear it tolling that a new country was created. You have to just stare at it, and listen carefully; you will also hear it.

This is where the US was formed, see it while you can. There is a lot of information and history here. Read about it before you go

Highly recommended for history lovers. Arrive early in the day to beat the crowd. 3-4 hours would an ideal duration for this place.

We found out that seniors have free passes to most exhibits, but you need to obtain passes at the visitor center first

Asa visitors centers go, this is a good one. Clean, comprehensive, good facilities. The center itself is not an attraction, of course, But it is part of a very important, very interesting attraction.

The entire area oozes with history! The exibits leading the the Liberty Bell are very good, which as unlike Disney, does not end at the gift shop but at the Liberty Bell. The winter is a fantastic time to visit as there are no lines and you can spend as much time as you want. After exiting, go out to... More

Museum needs redesign, not open enough to denote Our History, great as is when on tour for winter seasons. More Americana needed ( miscl stuff) for Era on display. Museum should denote Americana since Colonial Era to say 1805.

No lines. It's winter. As locals, our favorite time to visit. Interesting exhibits along block long building, culminating with a close up look at the symbol of Ametica's freedom. Summer lines can be brutal, so walk to Chestnut Street end of building and get a good look at the bell too. Visitors Center across from entrance to Liberty Bell has... More

It's real great fun learning history in a non-classroom atmosphere. Philadelphia is really the State of Brotherly Love. The park is fun and right nearby you will get to see the Independence Hall. So go to it.

The park consists of much more than just the Liberty Bell. There are several other must see historical sites: Independence Hall and the Mall itself, Franklin Court, Congress Hall, Visitor's Center and several other sites. And the best part is that all of these sites are free. You need to get tickets to go into Independence Hall (they are free)... More
