Family got to Visitor Center on Monday around 4:30. Found out that there was Group entry(they would allow a group in about every 15 mins) not specific time tickets from 5-7pm. Guide told us about the two significant rooms downstairs. The rest we could view...More

An inspiring place to visit, and I thought the guide we had was great. However really seemed rushed, and would have been nice to see a little more than we did. Not near as extravagant as one might think before seeing the building and going...More

A have-to on any trip to Philly. Amazing no matter how many times you see it. Crowds were surprisingly small the afternoon we stopped in so no waiting

If you appreciate the United States and its history, you will certainly want to see where it was "born".

We went in July and stayed 2 days in Philly. You need tix for this visit. It's a 30 min tour. Cost $1.50 per ticket to reserve on line. Walk up is free but certain times sell out.

The thing that interested me most was the Liberty Bell, which is quite beautiful as well as the preserved documents. Of course it is a must see for all Americans and those interested in understanding American History.

Great place to see if you like American history. Free to get in. You must have a ticket and they only give out 2000 per day. You get it at the visitor center. They start giving them out at 8:30 in the morning and once...More

The guided tours are limited by number and time so you must sign up as early as possible to get a same day tour. I found this tour to be more accommodating and informative than the liberty bell although a strip search was required to...More

I've been here twice and it's a beautiful place to visit. There's a lot of history here to be seen. From liberty bell to unknown soldier to museums and old houses. It's an interesting place.

If you have a ton of time or if you have limited time in Philadelphia, I highly recommend you visit Independence Hall. This was such an interesting and special place. I learned so much about our nation's history. Many people took pictures with the Liberty...More

We enjoyed our stay at the Sofitel. It's a great location and beautiful hotel. There are several great options though.

The 30th Street Station is at least 20 blocks from the historic district and would be a long walk. You can take the SEPTA train from the Amtrak 30th street station using the Market/Frankfort line. There are several stops... More

Hhmmm.... I'll say I'm not sure. We showed up mid - morning and had no problem. But that wasn't the day before our national holiday. If you didn't get tickets online, I would get there early. Be aware though - the wait for... More
