“Don't let line discourage you -”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

The line moved very quickly when we were there (about 9 am on a Wednesday morn in August).
We didn't need a ticket - Liberty Bell building/viewing was free!
The photos/display prior to the bell itself were well done, easy to follow and helped crowd control.
Building is air conditioned, security requires search of bags/luggage (we had luggage since we were traveling to another destination)... it went fine and reasonably quick. Of course the star is the bell itself. Nicely displayed, options for photos... just a shame to shoot into the window to get a shot of the 'crack' - needed to compensate on camera (those that didn't comp or force flash probably got dark pix). Worth the time !

“Must See While In Philly”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Kids and wife were excited to see the bell for the first time. It is much better location/facility than when I saw it 20 years ago. Arrive early because it is first come, first served (no tickets) and it gets very crowded. We arrived at 9:30 on a Sunday morning and had very little wait. Remember to get Independence Hall tickets while you wait.

Get your ticket at the Visitor center and the time to return. Thought the line outside looked long, it moved pretty quickly. A must see when you go to Philliy.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

There is nothing like seeing a historic landmark in person! Although the line is long, it moves quite quickly.

“Horrible road construction and no available parking. Several streets blocked off. Didnt even get out of the car.”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Make sure the construction is done and parking is actually available before you attempt this trip. Streets were blocked and were pot holes and deep trenches in places. This was a long over due project that will likely rake months and run of a lot of potential tourists like ne just because of the added headache.
