history. snow was pretty. Parking better than it used to be. Still a lot of people trying to take photos in a small space.

I have been to the Liberty Bell a whole host of times when visiting in Philly. Recently, we took the youngest family members. They were awed at actually seeing the bell. They had learned about it in school, but seeing it was very special. The bell plaza is most inspirational

Very informative of the history of the Liberty Bell. Free to see, might have to wait in line. They do security checks, very quick, not like the airport. Liberty Bell is roped off but generally not super crowded around, amazing to see so close, you can probably reach over and touch it but beware of the security risks involved. Amazing piece of Americas history to see.

“You can see the bell through the back window . . .”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

. . . and that's really all you were there for, right?

I understand getting frisked, showing the inside of your jeacket, letting someone search through your purse for a weapon or drugs (but probably not that old parking ticket or the tampax you really have in there) is a part of life now in these security-obsessed times. But really? To get into the Liberty Bell exhibit? For this you held me up and went through my belongings? The bell can very easily be viewed from the street in front of the building. Get a lens for your camera with a good filter, and you can even take a picture with the bell with out the glare. To see the bell not through the glass, one must wait 30 min in line, get frisked, and then walk, inevitably behind the slowest people in the world, through the most pointless exhibit known to man: that's right, the lead in to viewing of the Liberty Bell is . . . . lots and lots of pictures of people posing with the Liberty Bell. And looking at the liberty bell. And waiting, in line, to look at the Liberty Bell. Philly has lots of great history to offer - don't waste your time on this one.

The line was a little long, but this is a MUST SEE! I don't know how anyone can visit Phily without visiting the Liberty Bell! Bring a camera and be prepared to have your bags and person checked (for security reasons), but it is oh so worth it! Also, go early! They aren't open very late.
