This is a nice area that has the history of the bell displayed, as well as a small movie that tourists can watch. The bell is all the way in the back of the center. It was very crowded when we went and we had to wait to snap a few pictures. The rangers seemed tense at the amount of... More

The Liberty Bell Center is free and you get to see a national icon, what more is there to say? I went on a Monday in August and the line was quite short and though it was busy inside it wasn't out of control by any means. The center has a museum exhibition with the history of the Liberty Bell... More

We arrived early one morning to visit the center before all the crowds started showing up. We had no wait to get in, but in the afternoon the line was about a block long. This is really a large exhibit featuring not only the Bell itself, but the history of the Bell and the country. You could easily spend an... More

It was awesome seeing the Liberty Bell and reading about how we became a nation. We saw the bell and got to read about all the Liberty bell went thru.

Emotionally moving experience! So great to see this symbol of our great nation being enjoyed by so many people. The building housing the Liberty Bell is really ugly, having nothing to do with the Georgian architecture around it. However, the display is very informative and educational. The visit is free and the line moves quickly. Every American should see this... More

This is a great piece of history! While in Philadelphia, be sure to visit the Liberty Bell. Great photo opportunity though one is not allowed to touch this piece of history. Great location, very convenient to many other points of interest. There is no admission fee for visiting. Great family point of interest Be sure to put this on your... More

Across the street from the visitor center. The line is for security, not tickets and moves quickly. Once inside you can go directly to the bell where there is only a small line which moves right along.

The Liberty Bell is housed in a building that sits across the street from the Constitution Center and Visitors Center and just a couple of blocks from Independence Hall. There is a history of the bell inside the building, with stories and artifacts, and you are able to go up and take your photo in front of the Liberty Bell.... More

all around the area, there are some roundy benches where you can hear free histories from guys dressed like victorian age. They tell you short stories gossip style, making the experience quite enjoyable. GIVE IT A TRY.
