Very informative tour. Make sure to go to the visitors center for your free ticket before getting in line. It took about an hour total. Must see just for the history aspect.

History starts from the hall to the liberty bell and it completely proved to be a getaway to the history. A must visit and one should watch the movies in the beautiful visitor center.

a ticket is required but they're free from customer service across the court yard past the liberty bell exhibit. you'll be given a ticket and time to go. you'll have to pass through an "airport' style screening, then you'll wait until your tour time. once inside you'll be in the same room where OUR declaration of independence was debated and...

I have been thinking of going to Philly for years. Always wanted to be where our forefathers began this country. If you're interested in historic sites this is a must. The feeling of being in the same place where those men and moments occurred is kind of heady.

I have wanted to visit Independence Hall of years. My wife and I have just returned from a two week visit to Pennsylvania which included a tour through Independence Hall in old town Philadelphia. To save the early morning rush for tickets, I booked the tour on line before we left home. The cost to do that is nominal and... More

This was a great if short tour (about 30 minutes). Our park ranger was very knowledgeable and told the story of our history of the Constitution very well. It was especially exciting for us since we got to see where the American Constitution was signed on the 217th anniversary of its signing (Constitution Day). Great tour for kids about age... More

You can learn some historical information about Liberty Bell and some other facts, but there is not so much what to do. We spend there maybe 15 minutes.

Having been a history major, a history buff, an an attorney who studied, and has practiced some Constitutional law I thought I had to see Independence Hall. I wondered what I could actually learn in a half an hour tour. The guide brought our the significance of the time and events here staring the emotions of the tour group, particularly... More
