We walked here from Independence Hall, and stopped to see the outside. We didn't go inside to the museum part, because we were on a budget.

The audio tour was terrific, to listen in each room. Very homey. Was a highlight in my visit to Philly.

This was a nice stop on our trek through the historic district in Philadelphia. The $5 price was well worth the money. It was an easy walk from the Independence Visitor Center. The courtyard is nice and shaded and has plenty of benches. There is a small gift shop with typical Philadelphia tourist items for sale. You can follow the... More

I'm always interested to learn about women in America's history. So Betsy Ross House was a must when visiting Philadelphia. The house itself is tiny, but that just adds to the amazing story of Betsy and others who lived in colonial times. The price may seem a bit much for such a small tour, but they have to keep the...

This gorgeous and well-preserved house is part of American history and a must-see for all of us fortunate enough to have been born here or lucky enough to have this awesome country take us in.

Come on, man. It's BETSY ROSS's house. THE Betsy Ross. Why not walk through the house where she lived and check it out? You can't beat the price! It's one of the stops of the Hop On/Hop Off but tour.

We enjoyed our tour of the Betsy Ross house and I would have liked to have had more time there but we had timed tickets for Independence Hall so we did a quick run through. It really gives you a good feel for life in the time of the signing of the declaration of Independence.

Not much here to see, but was interesting to walk through the house and imagine it as it once was. There were people in period costume answering questions who were very good at getting the children to become involved in what was going on in each room of the house. There is a lovely, shaded courtyard beside the house with... More

The Betsey Ross House is a small house where you will be treated by Betsey Ross and shown how she made the american flag. Children can also participate in the cutting process, story telling... More

This was a fun tour . The granddaughters liked pretending to cook. We got there late but they didn't rush us out. I liked the courtyard best .
