It's free, but reserve your tickets in advance for Independence Hall (available at the visitor center). If you don't have a ticket go visit the Liberty Bell Center and the Congress Hall the tour is fun, informative, and can be done without reservation.

Everything is free. Unless you buy a timed ticket for $1.50 to see the Declaration itself. We were there for the Bruce Springsteen show on Friday 9/9. This entire area is run by the National Parks Service who, given that it was also 9-11 weekend, a Browns-Eagles game weekend handled the crowds admirably.

The National Park is located in the center of the sprawling city. It was very busy over the weekend but you can see a lot in a short amount of time. Be sure to go the visitors center FIRST to get your free, timed ticket to go to Constitution Hall. Those tickets are first come and do sell out. For... More

Everything is so well organised and presented by the excellent park rangers. Just make see you find out what is available to see. Some things are easy to miss.

This national park encompasses two national treasures: The Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. To avoid confusion, the Liberty Bell IS NOT within Independence Hall. It's a great historical area of the city and the outside part is even nice to stroll.

Philadelphia is a great place to learn about the Independence of the USA, the early years after Independence and the social and political order of the country in its formative years. First we visited the site of the President's House where we spent a long time reading about George Washington. We also learnt many interesting facts about African Americans who... More
