Lots of great information and good to get up close to the bell itself. I suggest if your not familiar with the history to read up before you go as its more meaningful.

“Popular Bell”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Although there is no evidence that the bell rang on the Independence Day in 1776, the bell is very popular among Americans. Liberty Bell Centre is a building only for the bell. After you pass a security check at the entrance, you will read many panels and watch videos about the history of the bell. At the end of the centre, the bell is displayed and many visitors are taking a picture. I don't want to be rude, but I felt it was a bit touristy.

“Nice upgrade”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The last time I saw the Liberty Bell, I didn't have this beautiful structure to enjoy. The building is well designed and all the information inside is really moving! Luckily we went early (10am) so we didn't have any lines with plenty of room to wander.

Having family over in Philadelphia calls for a visit downtown. Noo ther place to show them some US historical places. The Liberty Place Center should not be missed if you are visitig Philadelphia.
