Though it can no longer be rung, the bell remains a lasting American symbol of freedom.

This was a fun family history lesson. Kids seemed to love it. Plan to go through security and that includes removing coats even when it's cold outside... no restrooms so plan ahead. Other then that all was fine.

Found the exhibit leading up to the bell interesting - helped to explain its significance and historical context. Entrance is free, you just have to queue to get in, but believe you can get a peek at the bell through the windows too.

The unavoidable security measures needed in this day and age , took away from visiting the liberty bell. My young son wasn't happy about the 45 minute wait to get inside , due to bag checks etc. Maybe having a " express line" for visitors...More

This is definitely a must-see! As an adult, even I didn't have the patience to read every little thing in the museum. So don't plan on being able to spend a lot of time going through here with kids - they will get bored. The...More
