Yes it is a cracked bell, but the symbolism and reality of it are immense. Read the wall plaques watch the videos and think back. What it was like back then.
Our queue was extremely short at 4:30 and a small wait is expected. History it is.

We queued for almost 30min as it was crowded on a Saturday afternoon. Although it was a small bell, couldn't get a good pic because everyone was crowding around the icon, it was really good to know the history. Been there done there thingy but I'm glad we didn't missed it when we were in Philadelphia :)

I like United States history a lot. I think it's important to know where we came from to know where we want to go and what is truly important. And so although this attraction may only have a few small exhibits, some informational boards and such, and may have a queue to see it/get your picture taken with it, I still think it's worthwhile and interesting to see once. There are definitely worse places to go, but don't expect to be thrilled. This isn't a theme park. Patient, mature kids might enjoy, but an adult crowd is probably best. The bell park and Independence Hall area are quite lovely, and you might even catch a historic carriage ride while you're down there for a relaxing and interesting view of the city.

I guess you have to see this when in Philadelphia, but it's not really that interesting. We turned up late afternoon and there were no queues, which was good. I would have been more disappointed if I'd queued for hours to see it. The history is interesting but the displays are tired and dated, and not many of them. The bell itself is - well - a bell. We had the obligatory photo next to it and moved on.
