Had expected this to be on view in the middle of a park. No, it was inside a building with a line an hour long, not something I would line up for. The park surrounding it was hosting an all day religious revival of some sort. Also not the kind of thing I would subject myself to for an hour.... More

Tour of Independence Hall was cool because of the historical significance and good docents. Grounds are in disrepair and trashy, poorly kept. Visitors Center was unorganized and dirty, trash everywhere, and the movie was horrible, probably 40 years old. This was embarrassing for our country.

This visit couldn't of happened at a better time. It really gave context to what my daughter was learning in school, and was excited to share with her teacher what she saw & learned. It was just as exciting for us parents as well.

We love National Parks and this one did not disappoint. We went on a very rainy day but still very much enjoyed it. We reserved tickets online for Independence Hall, and standing in such a historic building was amazing. We also saw original drafts of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and visited Congress Hall. The Liberty Bell has a... More

Must see for views of the Liberty bell. Security is tight and does create long wait lines, but to view a national treasure it is worth the wait. The inside has very informative displays and lots of room to more. Great views of the Liberty bell from a close distance.

There's not much else to see besides the Liberty Bell but that was ok. I went early on a Tuesday morning and there were no crowds except for a school group. A little information provided in addition to the Bell itself.

As tourist stuff goes, this was disappointing. Huge crowds in small area, not really that much. Do not get me wrong, the history is amazing and you must see the Liberty Bell, but the rest of the stuff did not seem to be thought out very well. Several TV's blaring old movies or segments that someone deemed to be important.... More

The historic significance of Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell are so important, that they should not be missed. Any visitor to the Philadelphia area should make this a "must see". It is most important for students and immigrants.

Great tour by knowledgeable park rangers. It is a walk through history. Go for an early time slot and beat the crowds. A must do.
