A must stop! Not only do you get to see and be near the famous Liberty Bell but you can learn about so much of it's history that unless you are a history buff you'd never have heard or known about its importance to so many cultural groups. Pretty impressive!

Seeing the Liberty Bell in all it's glory was awesome, my kids thoroughly enjoyed lioking at history right in front of them. The park is well kept and the restrooms are clean.

Because I was here on business, I didn't have as long to check everything out, but the park was very nice, large, and informative. I hope to be able to spend much longer if I return. Allow plenty of time if you're a history buff!

Definitely a must-do if you're in Philly (but go see Eastern State Pen first). Definitely not a good idea to go on a day with cold weather as most of the long lines queue outdoors.

Historically it holds a lot of importance and it is one of the places that you should visit while in Philadelphia and I was fortunate enough to get a guided tour helping with all the relevant and background information on the place and making the visit much more effective and worthwhile.

Unfortunately, it was freezing, so we couldn't stay as long as we would have wanted. Was struck by the friendliness of the other people there. Families, all happy to interact with each other

We had not been to Philadelphia since our adult children were little. We were so taken with the expansion and design of the entire area. The presentations were so inclusive of the diversity in our country. The build up to actually seeing the bell was so well presented. It was a patriotic feeling seeing photos of famous individuals taking photos... More

This is the must see tourist attraction in Philadelphia. I visited twice here, once only saw the Liberty Bell, and for the recent trip I got into a guided tour to the Independence Hall. The guided tour was fun and educational. It felt great when I stood in the Independence Hall and imagined what happened there hundreds of years ago.
