“Nice to see”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We went to Philly just for a day trip and we chose to go see the liberty Bell. It was free and a nice little history lesson. Don't be afraid of the long line when you walk up to the facility it moves pretty quickly.

“Quick moving line”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We were intimidated by the long line that seemed to wrap around the building, but we waiting only 20 minutes and were able to get in and out easily.

“Poor rating due to long long long lines”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

You must arrive VERY EARLY to start standing in line at the Liberty Bell. We arrived around 9:00am to see a line stretching from the door down the walk and around the corner. It was a hot day and the sun was beating down on the people in line. We had two small children with us and it appeared the line ws not moving. We couldn't risk it and decided to come back later. We toured around and came back hours later to find the line LONGER! We left again and came back after closing to see the bell through the window...there was even a line to do that! The bathrooms in the brick building across the grass area are FILTHY, people we treating it like a trucks top bathroom. Piles of dirty toilet paper covering the floors, urine on the floors. The stench was horrible and I cannot unsee the things I saw in there! If you gotta go...cross the street to the visitors center and use the bathrooms there.

Once you pass through security (which could be greatly improved) you have simple yet memorable exhibits to view before you reach the Liberty Bell. In essence they are all reminders that you will be seeing just an old cracked metal bell that has grown into one of the greatest symbols of liberty.
Great leaders and historic movements have used the bell as a rallying cry for freedom and now you have the opportunity to see this icon - and yes, click away your photos. Some found it profoundly emotional. It commands dignity and respect

Details - Long line, but constantly moving. No ticket necessary. After 3 pm, the hundreds of school children appear to return to their buses and the line shortens drastically.

“American History Must-See Place!”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

This is really fantastic to see how the history of the US was created in this place... Apart from Liberty Bell, there are also remainders of the old walls of the original building. Even though we are not from the US, it was great for us to see the place, the bell with the whole expositionm the architecture and the square. You may face a long queue in the summertime though, so be prepared or look for online booking option (I'm not sure though if it exists, we did not check it).
