Not very interactive but great history. Took our 10 year old but definitely not for smaller children.

I was able to to visit the Liberty Bell Center and it was wonderful. It is such an awe inspiring piece of history. There is a great exhibit with history of the United States and some major historical events. Seeing the bell I was surprised to see it wasn't as big as I thought. As a kid learning about the...

Lots of history is to be had here to try to read what the signs and posters have to say. The queue to get it was fairly significant but it moved consistently and once in people took a photo with the bell after reading and ten left. Once in you won't be in for more than 30mins I would say.

This is what you would expect-the bell surrounded by a museum style set up that tells the history of the bell. It actually takes more time to get through security than it does to look at the Bell. The security people are grumpy!! Be aware of what they are saying and you will be fine, but be clueless and they... More

You can see and take photos with the Liberty Bell there. I arrived on Sunday late morning and found a long queue outside of the centre. Don't be scare by this. It only took me around 15-20 mins to get into the centre. Well worth a visit.

The line can be quit long. If you just want to see it, you can walk on the right side and go to the end. Look in the window and see the bell. Even if you go inside, you can't touch it but they have other displays to see.

The monument holds more than just history but symbolism for more now than ever. The site is free to visit once you pass through security. To see the liberty bell was a grounding experience. We could all take note from our forefathers and what they wanted for this country.
