No tickets needed, free. The line to get in to view the Liberty Bell is slow. Everyone must go through metal detectors much like an airport security screening. Once you are in, viewing the Liberty Bell is great with Independence Hall just behind as a...More

Although the Liberty Bell is without a doubt a large part of our history, an entire building to it is a bit much. The bell is well worth seeing but the other "stuff" they have set up is just a place holder for the line...More

Full of history and great tales. All the tour guides had details and fun stories to share. Did you know the liberty bell had two cracks in it? Worth the visit.

Was here in November as well. A long queue at that time. You just see the Liberty Bell. So not really exciting . In January/ February free entrance

Worth the stop to see this piece of history. We went on a Friday afternoon and basically walked right in only a few people ahead of us to go through the metal detector. When we passed by on Saturday the line was way longer.

This is a historical place with lot to learn about the US independence. The bell has been a symbol for freedom and this place honors that.

.... and it's associated and inscribed with a passage from our Bible, the Book of Leviticus 25:10. It's large- not "smaller than expected," as some other poster commented. I saw it from outside, during the freezing polar vortex and government shutdown.

I was just strolling by and noticed there was no line and no cost to see the Liberty Bell so I went in. It’s simple, you go thru security and there’s the Bell. No lines, no rush it was really cool. I’m not sure its...More

We were so disappointed that one of the most important and iconic entity of the US history was closed to visitors due to Government shutdown. We could see the bell from outside, there was a long queue. We learnt more about the significance of the...More

Liberty Bell is free and doesn't require a ticket or reservation. Just go whenever you choose. Just remember certain times will be busier than others. We went Saturday late afternoon and it was packed.

Thoughts/Input on itinerary? (10 Replies)
My husband and I are bringing our 2 kids (ages 7 & 8) to Philly this summer for a week (Sat - Sat). Was looking for input on this itinerary from locals/experts, thanks! We live about 3 hours away so we plan to get in Saturday afternoon. Also, we'd love any suggestions on kid friendly restaurants with good customer service, one of the kids has multiple severe food allergies so being able to line up a few places to eat that are willing to work with his needs would be really nice. ...More

All very good except the kids are much too old for Please Touch. One good kid friendly restarant is Pietro's on the 1700 block of Walnut Street. Large menu. May or may not be convenient depending on where you are staying.

doable? (6 Replies)
Hi, can we do these activities in one day? Also, I believe they are all very close to one another: Independence hall, Independence national historic park,Independence visitor center, Liberty bell center , constitution center , Betsy Ross house. Is there an order we should see these sites in to make it more interesting. We have a 9 and 11 year old. Thanks guys.

Easily done in one day, though you need advance tickets for Independence Hall. When will you be here?
