“Liberty Bell Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Long, boring line in the cold, but the inside of the exhibit is attrractive, informative, easy to navigate and well worth the wait. Best of all it is free! Be dure to have your kids ask the rangers for trading cards.

“It's free!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

It's free. You'll learn something. Kinda boring though. You just walk through and snap some photos. Leave a donation for good karma.

“Nice History Exhibit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Of course you go to see the Bell! It was nicely displayed and during the week in the middle of winter, there was a tons of time to look and read exhibits, as well as walk around the bell. It was beautiful and it is clearly a national treasure.

“Wish I had not seen it 27 years ago.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

i remember seeing the bell 27 years ago and thinking it was great. For some reason it just didn't excite me to see it a second time. The center the bell is housed in is a big improvement over the way it was before: you just walked in and there was the bell. The displays are a great way to learn the history of the bell before you see it. If you come to Philly though it would be a shame to miss it. Not being sentimental, I didn't feel in awe of it. My kids very much felt like the Liberty bell was something ticked off their list. I was far more inspired by Independence Hall.

“A must-see spot in the US!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Last week I was able to spend one day in Philadelphia. The weather was nice and almost spring like and so we decided to take a walk to the Liberty Bell Center and Park. When we arrived there there was a long line-up so we continued on to the City Hall across and all the other beautiful venues in that area. After taking our pictures (at the spot where "National Treasure" had been filmed) we went back to the Bell. We waited maybe 5 minutes (because of security) and spent some nice time in the center.
