Independence is something that most of us take for granted. I really enjoyed looking back at a time when what we expect wasn't the norm. It is good to reflect back to realize how fortunate we are that we are truly free!

Great space, needs a little boost and update on the displays, but of course Park Service money is limited. Mainly this is a place to get tickets, brochures and maps, snacks and gifts. (and use the clean bathrooms, whew)

We found this a very good place to start our visit. The information desk really WAS helpful, staffed by very nice people. The exhibits were interesting and well thought out, and there were 2 free films about the beginnings of our nation that I found interesting.

Lots of brochures, pictures, information on tours, a fabulous gift shop, restroom facilities and very helpful staff. Got there first. It helps. It closes promptly at 6:00 p.m.
