Unfortunately our PC society has focused this hallowed place on tragedy rather than triumph. It didn’t cover the perseverance of our countries first leaders in establishing this great country but rather on the present day socially unacceptable practices of that timeframe. This should be a place that focuses on the triumph of the country as a whole and what we aspired to be at that time. Liberty is a mindset, not a position.

I absolutely loved seeing this historical icon. It brought tears to my eyes as I am a very patriotic person. The venue is free which was great!

It's a great place. It doesn't take to long and its packed with history. The tour guides and rangers are very nice. Security is tight, but that's to be expected.

When you actually get to the front of the line to see the bell, you'll feel very let down. There are too many other sites to see that are a lot more rewarding.

I visited the Liberty Bell Center in December 2021. I have been here many times before. I got there at 8:50 am and went right in at 9 am. I had the Liberty Bell all to myself except for security guards and was able to get a great photo without a crowd of people hanging around the Liberty Bell blocking my view. I never get tired of visiting Historic Philadelphia.

You cannot miss this exhibit showcasing a special part of American history!! It's free!! Outside the entry to the bell are several exhibits displaying parts of our early history. You can easily get lost watching the videos and reading the plaques. It is so interesting and informative. Once inside, more of the same until you reach the bell at the end of the hall. The park personnel are friendly and helpful and the exhibit is well done and attractive.

This is what freedom and liberty look like

The Park Service has done a wonderful job making a visit you’re safe, efficient, and enjoyable

The Liberty Bell is now inside a visitor friendly enclosure obviously providing protection not taking away from an enjoyable visit

The line moves faster than it might seem too yet they do allow you to take photos once you reach the bill itself

Go enjoy

There is so much more here than just the bell itself. It's complete history is presented. Also, there is a section on women's suffrage, civil rights, slavery, etc. It's very thorough and so well done. We were there for an hour.

The liberty bell is an iconic part of American history and it is a very moving experience to see it in person. We went on a weekday and the lineup was very short with only a handful of people in the building. Lots of interesting information and bell-themed souvenirs. The staff on hand were wonderful and happy to answer questions.
