Great place to become acquainted with the foundations of our nation

This is a great place to become acquainted with the foundations of our nation. Lots of re-enactors in costume telling their stories.

It is cool to be in the same buildings that housed such amazing and historical events such as the signing of the Declaration of Independence and more. However, everything inside the buildings has been redone and nothing is original. For a person into true history, this kind of misses it all The Liberty Bell is great, and is many of... More

I enjoyed our time ai Independence NHP. A trip to the visitors center will be needed to purchase and/reserve tickets for various attractions within the park. There will be a lot of walking within the city so bring your walking shoes and if it is warm perhaps an umbrella and plenty of water.

Be sure to stop at Independence National Historical Park. This is a very family friendly point of interest in Philadelphia. No admission fee is charged. It is clean. Staff is helpful. As there are so many nearby points of interest, visitors will find the location to be very convenient. Bring the whole family when you visit!

Yep, it's where it all started in America with Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and that crew. Lots of history to see in this area. It's right on the mall, a couple of blocks from the Constitution Center, so it's convenient to see both the same day. The subway stop is 4th St on the Market St line and several buses... More

We were lucky we go there 30 min before closing so no line. The next day we saw the line and it was over a block long .

History that every United States citizen should see! Really nicely presented. I'd always heard the Liberty Bell was small but I was pleasantly surprised at the large size, how clearly you could see the crack, and how close you could get to it. Just a really special symbol that is free to all.

What is a visit to Philadelphia without stopping to see the Liberty Bell and touring Independence Hall? Both historical attractions are FREE. Expect lines at the Liberty Bell. For Independence Hall FREE tickets with tour time are available online and can be picked up 1 hour ahead at the Visitors' Center. The sun is rising.
