“Nice day trip to Philly”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We had one day to spend in Philly and decided to visit the Independence mall. There's nothing noteworthy unless you are excited by history. I could not understand why there was rigorous security check one building that housed only one artifact - the Liberty Bell.

“A must do!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

My first visit to Philly I had to see it through the window because the government was shut down. I've always wanted to see the Liberty Bell -- this time I wasn't disappointed. The line was short, the admission is free. There's interesting information in the exhibit leading up to the bell.

“Nice area to visit”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

The Liberty Bell site is interesting but not as captivating for a non-American. The symbolism of the liberty bell is good but it is still really a large cracked bell. The fact that it is in a beautiful setting and that the experience is free makes it a worthwhile diversion for a visit.

“No tickets, get in line”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We tried to get tickets online, in advance of our trip to Philly but they were "sold out". When we arrived we walked past and the sign out front said no tickets required so we jumped in line and waited to see the bell for free. If you are going to do this you need to get there early as the line grew and was quite long later in the day. We were in line on a Thursday by 10:30 and were inside quite quickly. It was great and while you can look through a window to get a view of the bell....my suggestion would be to take the time and go inside. Looking through the window just wasn't the same in my opinion.

“Amazing Stop!”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

You can't visit Historic Philadelphia without seeing The Liberty Bell. Yes, the lines might be long but it is well worth the wait. Once you get into the museum there is so much history to read and see about the Liberty Bell and how much it means to American History. It is really quite amazing. Our children, even the wee ones really enjoyed this stop. The symbol of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happyness" is a must stop!
