Even when museum is closed you can see the bell through a huge window with explanations. That’s nice! Not far an open air museum where Washington and Adams lived while president. Very cool!

Every country has it's history, but no country is as patriotic and unique as the United States of America. Philadelphia is a prime example of the unique history. The liberty bell is as American as apple pie, baseball and Chevrolet. Preserved well and a great...More

It is smaller than I expected. But glad we went on a Sunday morning. There was no lines and not a crowd to take pics. It was very laid back and quiet. You have to go see this if your in Philadelphia

Nicely staged space with pictures and words that guide you through the history of the Liberty Bell. Wow! I learned so much! Get here early so you can enjoy everything! The school kids come through late morning and it can get crowded.

Yes, thanks to the security check points, there is quite a long line to wait in before gaining access to Independence Hall, however the line moves relatively quickly and the exhibit hall tends to be crowded nearly to bursting during most of the open hours....More

Order your tickets online - they are free the day of, but only cost $1.50 to order ahead of time. They do sometimes sell out, so worth $1.50 to make sure you have a spot. If any way possible, walk or Uber downtown... More
