Should see this

It's an interesting place. There's a lot of information about the colonies and about the history of slavery.

Another informative exhibition. I can't believe that these exhibitions are free of charge. Very well presented and informative. Could have stayed longer.

Interesting displays about the Liberty Bell and its history make it easy to appreciate its importance. Enjoyed the chance to take photos with the bell.

I would hope that everybody visiting Philadelphia sees the Liberty Bell. But the Center is not just about the bell. The other displays are interesting and informative. It's an important piece of American history.

Visited and found the display well laid out and very informative and as an English visitor I could understand why our American friends are so patriotic which I think is tremendous. The Rangers were helpful and the Bell is well displayed. The only drawback was the surging Chinese visitors who simply pushed everyone aside and appeared in everyone's photos.

This is set up only to see the Liberty Bell, which is at the end of the exhibit on the bell. Earlier in the building you see placards describing how the bell was made and repaired, and how its meaning has changed for different groups throughout US history. The bell itself was nice, and they set it up so you... More

A must-see if you are visiting Philadelphia to experience the historical sites. The Liberty Bell is housed in a modern and lovely facility. You will need to pass through some security to get inside but don't let that deter you. The process is efficient and the lines keep moving. The bell is at the back of the building. You can... More
