“A must see and its free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

In between Independence Hall and the Visitors Center is this long thin building that houses the Liberty Bell. Its free to enter.. About 70% percent of the long corridor of this building is the history of the bell and its making. At the end is the bell on display, with a view of independence Hall. I was there on a snowy March day and it was packed with tour groups, so you may have to wait for a photo without hords of people.... But its worth the wait.

“A must if you are exploring Philadelphia.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We just happened to stop in by chance, but so glad we did! A beautiful exhibit with interesting displays about the development of colonial America, the evils of slavery, the link between abolition and the Liberty Bell and the progression of women's rights. We were fortunate that they were celebrating the history of women's rights and heard a wonderful live presentation of the about Lucretia Motts, as well as a live presentation about how the State House Bell began to be referred to as the "Liberty Bell". Worth the stop. The exhibit is free but be aware that there area sometimes long lines. We first went by on Saturday at about 3:30, but the line was 1/2 block long. On Sunday at 10:30 in the morning, we walked right in.
