“Where America started”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Could you imagine being there Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Handcock all signing the Declaration of Independence. If that document
got in the wrong hands they all would have died. Its a great place to visit
to see where America was born.

“Great family activity”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Independence Hall is a terrific family visit and should be the center piece to a visit to historic Philly. Add in great restaurants and many museums and Philly is really worth going to.

“Free Admission”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

There are many historic sites in Philadelphia including Independence Hall, a World Heritage Site. If you are an international tourist to New York, spare a half day for Philadelphia and visit independence Hall and Liberty Bell Centre. Independence Hall is not a big hall, so one guide speak to all the visitors in the hall. His talk is interesting and sometimes funny. He is also happy to answer your question.

“Worth the stop”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Very informative, well maintained and again, luckily we went early so there wasn't a wait. The tour guide provided an overwhelming amount of information as we roasted in the room where the Declaration of Independence was signed, but I thought it was great that he was available for any questions following the monologue too. Would have enjoyed some information to read in the rooms upstairs, maybe some sketches depicting what the sights would have been in the 1700s from Independence Hall.
