I was a little overwhelmed by the line waiting to get in Liberty Bell Center in the morning. At midafternoon,it took about 10 minutes in line. Seeing something of such historical value is well worth the visit.

Great place to see the Liberty Bell and a view of Independence Hall. There are so many sights to see, and the line here can be long, so try to arrive early. Or, you can see the bell from the window outside and skip the line.

Forgot it was class trip time, so a bit of a wait and pretty crowded and noisy. Showing out-of-towners a bit of our city - very proud to be able to show them our history.

The wait was only 15 minutes and it was worth it. This is a must to go in. The museum before you get to the Libery Bell is so well done and a must to see

During a recent visit I chose to go see the liberty Bell. I hadn't been here since my high school days (school trip) and many things have changed (where it is displayed for one). It is free and is a nice little history lesson. Don't be intimidated of the long lines when you walk up to the facility as it moves pretty quickly and you seldom wait beyond 20-30 minutes.
