“Great to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

On my first trip to Philly, I saw the line from afar of all the foreign tourists dying to see the liberty bell...so I decided I am sooo skipping that line...

On my second trip to Philly, It was dreary and I had all inside things planned for the day...well my day had finished up a bit early and I decided to squeeze it in...and I walked right up and right in...no wait at all...

It was great to see! You do have to so through security. A nice piece of history. There is street parking all around.

“We Glued The Bell!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Oral and Visual History leading toward the Bell was super informative and helpful. We had been before when it was very crowded and were thrilled to be in a spartan group of visitors who didn't have to jockey for photo ops....

“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.
