The focal point of our trip. Having watched National Treasure and being a history buff, to see all the things in the movie, and to see and touch the same items that Washington, Adams, and Jefferson did was amazing.

A must see on your trip. But the tickets in advance online if you plan to visit during summer. There is more to see besides independence Hall, check out the congress hall and the visitor center.

There is nothing like standing in the shadow of history, exactly where it happened. This park has done a phenomenal job restoring the sights and opening up massive amounts of green space.

I landed in Philly and had to drive on to Maryland for a 4:00 meeting ... just enough time to try to visit Independence National Historical Park. I found a parking lot around 2nd and Market streets and walked a few blocks to the visitor's center. It had some nice displays, and even a few live historical recreators. I got... More

Nice historic display that is spacious and easy to maneuver. There is nothing rushing you, so you can take as much time as you want to read.

Nice area set up around the Liberty Bell. We were able to walk straight through and view what we wanted to see.

Excellent! My children really enjoyed this! It was crowded, however the staff did a great job of keeping the crowd moving while answering questions. Well worth the wait in line!
