While getting through security with young children is not usually easy, the staff here is clearly used to it. Everything ran smoothly and it only took a few minutes. Everyone in our group enjoyed the stop, even the littlest people. It’s such a huge part...More

You cannot come to Philadelphia without seeing the Liberty Bell - if only so you can say you have. It is in a nice location, but at the end of the day, there is not much to see.

The center is easily located and a pleasant area to walk around. Take in the feel of stepping back in time and appreciate your freedom. You simply must see this in person to fully understand - its a quick easy visit.

So meaningful for an armchair historian like me. It means so much more to to see it in person. I can't wait to bring my family one day.

Queue was short and searching of bags didn't take long. Bell is well displayed but didn't see any information on its history or significance. The crack in the bell was visible. Worth the visit

We didn't have time to look at this during the day, but at night the Liberty Bell is so striking! It's all lit up. Best viewed from the street it shares with Independence Hall, but if you approach from the other side, videos are playing...More

The bell has such an interesting story behind it. Take the time to stop and talk to the National Park Rangers on hand to discover all the various stories and meaning surrounding the bell. Otherwise, you’re just looking at a broken bell. Ask about the...More

The Liberty Bell is located across the street from Independence Hall in a separate building. We went on a Sunday in February (off-peak) and there were signs that tickets were not needed, so I would encourage to look into tickets before you go. You do...More

If YOU take a picture of the Liberty Bell, you may use your picture. I strongly suggest you confirm with an attorney specializing in trademarks, copy write, and the likes

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.
