I can't believe they actually made not one, not two but THREE separate attractions regarding this bell! Ok, it's historic, but I still don't understand what the big deal is...

Clean bathrooms with a small snack bar, cool place to be one rest in the hot summer heat. Book your tours from there. See the freedemos and costumed people and good starting point!

Learned as much from the helpful park rangers in the center as we did from the park ranger guides. Sorry to hear that the 2013 financial sequester mess will limit hours and availability of historic sites to Philly visitors interested in seeing sites operated by our National Parks Service beginning May 1, 2013.
