Nice landmark

Not too far from Center City. We didn't take the time to look up where this was located and went for a walk and randomly stumbled upon the liberty bell.

The center offers travel advice for getting around town. Check into the city pass this will help on the prices of the attractions.

The bell tolled for the British Empire, indeed! The basic principles on which the united states were founded comes to memory while walking through the Independence Hall.

Very interesting tour and well worth your time to see the founding place of our nation. The tour takes about 30 minutes and has an excellent guide.

This was a well run attraction with lots of interesting information. The volunteer guides do a very nice job. The tour is about 20 minutes. Each group takes about 85 people.

Was taking the family North and stopped in for a day trip to Philly. Really enjoyed the National Mall and definitely worth the stop. Walking through old town is safe, but travel on foot beyond that is not. Police presence outisde of tourist attractions is spotty inviting unsafe conditions. I lived in Atlanta for 10 years so I dont spook... More

The tour was good with some facts I had never knew. I did not know at first about how the tickets were in the Visitor Center and had to go and get them. Still it was a good tour and a must see for anyone who wants to see pure American history. At the time I went they were repairing... More

I went at the end of the day on a Monday so the queues were not too bad. I waited 20-30 mins to get in. The tour guides were enthusiastic and informative. Entry was free and it was really humbling to stand in the room where a nation was born. A must if you're in Philly.

This is a good place for children of all ages. If your child is too young they can run around the park while older children can listen to the guided tour!

We were here on Presidents' Day. No tickets (they are free, you can get them from the Information center) are needed in January or February. I kind of hoped that they would have had the tickets, since the lines were really long (even though they do take appr. 90 people per tour). Because of the lines we skipped the plan... More
