605 reviews
Philadelphia was the first capital of the United States, and is home to many major historical monuments and landmarks. On this intimate walking tour, see most of Philadelphia’s essential sights, all while learning about the City of Brotherly Love’s history from your guide. In the company of a small group, see Independence Hall, the Betsy Ross, Franklin Court, and more, and wind down with a cold beverage in Old City.

Times tickets were required for entry and it’s only open on weekends right now. Enjoyed Founders Hall with all the bronze statues. Unfortunately, so many people felt it necessary to rub Thomas Jefferson; he’s now “shiny”. The Civil War and Women’s vote were interesting. The video presentation provided a nice overview of the founding father’s work.

Allow several hours for this attraction. There is so much to see and learn about our history. Changing exhibits also make it a place to go back to over and over.

When we visited, it was offering free admission by appointment only due to Covid. The exhibits were on Reconstruction after the Civil War and the 19th Amendment (women's suffrage). My wife, a history teacher who covers both subjects with her 11th grade students, felt it was very well done and very informative. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The gentleman at the bronze statues of the signing of the Constituition was a wealth of information that made the visit even more informative. The show on the birth of the nation was shown as a video presentation due to Covid. We felt it was well done, but would be so much more impressive to see performed live sometime. Some parts of the museum are not open to the public right now due to Covid.

We visited this museum during Covid-19 and right after they reopened. They took reservations and limited the number of patrons who could go through. Very helpful staff. Worth the time, especially the reenactment of the signing of the Constitution in bronze statues. Lots of great information on slavery. It was my favorite part. Skip the movie at the end and be sure to support the exhibit by going to the shop and buying a token or gift for someone at home. You only need an hour or so to get through the place so it is good for short attention spans.

This a newer member of the sites around the Independence Mall. It has historic and interactive displays considering Constitution history and current events. It is a good primer for understanding the document which is the basis of our government. Although it is not an historic site, it has a deep message.
