I loved going there because it brought back my high school history and sparked the interest of more in-depth learning. The tour guides knew the history well and you never felt as if they were be bothered by a lot of questions.Great to see.

We enjoyed our visit to Independence Mall on our recent visit. It presents a very extensive view of revolutionary history. It presents what the colonists and founding fathers experienced while also showing the role of slavery in the American colonies.. Well worth the visit.

Loved walking through the park and taking in all the history not just of Philadelphia but of our nation. This is conveniently located near the major sites: Liberty Bell, Ben Franklin's Gravesite, Independence Hall, U.S. Mint, and so much more. Make it your first stop when you visit Philadelphia.

The mall is a wonderful expansive outdoor venue. We enjoyed it as we were taking in the museum and the sight of the Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell.

Considering the Historical value of the site, I was disappointed that there were few things to see. The mall was plain and small. Other than the Liberty Bell, which is now encased from the public, there is nothing visual to see. They founding fathers would have wanted a better memorial.
