We enjoyed the story of the Liberty Bell. The visitor center is air conditioned. The video portions are only for non-English speakers.

We went on the tour and my wife absolutely loved it. We really enjoyed getting to see the old part of Philly.

At first we thought the line was horribly long, but it moved fast. Security was also quick. Don't bring a pocket knife! While you go through the line, you can also check out the location of Washington's house, which helped the wait. The exhibit is free, and once you get inside the little visitor's center for the bell, it's air... More

Not to crowded; but could use a line for viewing the Liberty Bell. You just jump in to get your picture taken in front of the Bell. No time to really look at it. The Kids Fun Zone was great and the two guys in there were helpful to engage the kids into the exhilbit. Will come back again.

The bell is a must see and it is free to visit. I went with someone who grew up in Philly and they were surprised at the lines into see the bell. It wasn't that seeing the bell had a line, it was getting through the security check that took so long but the line moved quickly. There was some... More

The lines are quite long, and you will most likely have to stand in the sun for a bit. However, you can't go to Philly and skip the Bell. There is lots of good information once you get inside through security, and its very neat to see the actual Bell.

We happened to be in the city during the democratic national convention. The lines were long but they moved quickly and efficiently. You do have to go through security. There is not much that can be said about a bell but this one is the Liberty Bell. Part of our heritage. It gave me a good feeling just seeing it!... More

We came to the area more to visit Independence Hall, but seeing the Liberty Bell was also great. The line to enter moved fairly quickly and once inside we were able to set a quicker pace as we moved through the informational panels that outlined the history of the Liberty Bell. The visit culminates in seeing the Liberty Bell itself.... More

We arrived late in the day and all tickets for touring had been given out. We were able to view the outside of the buildings but had to stay across the street.
