Waiting times for Liberty Bell/Ind. Hall

Does the Liberty Bell require a ticket, or just security screening? We also plan on seeing Independence Hall, which I know requires a ticket.

How much of a wait can we expect to see both (specifically, this weekend). Thanks!

No ticket required to get into the Liberty Bell. The security screening hasn't always been there but, as you can imagine, 9/11 made that necessary. :(

It's hard to estimate the wait times. On the lines I've passed on the weekend, I would say maybe 20 minutes. It might be longer on a holiday weekend. Only so many people are taken into the Liberty Bell building at one time. A park service person gives a brief history of the bell and then people are allowed to take pics.
