A must see for any American history buff. We did not know that you could reserve tickets online (there is a cost for reservations). You have to have timed free tickets to visit. We arrived early and got tickets but they may run out if...More

As a Brit, it was fascinating to see where it all kicked off! This is a VERY popular attraction so obtain tickets in advance or, as we did, try your luck at the Visitor Center as they issue any uncollected pre-booked tickets. Tickets are free...More

Make a reservation in advance on the National Park website as it is hard to get a ticket by simply showing up. You don't need to be an American History buff, as I am, to be thrilled by this experience. National Park rangers give informative...More

In some ways this reminds me of Faneuil Hall - its a great building to see but all the important stuff is in someone else' collection. The actual area the building sits is extraordinarily well preserved and does a great job of giving you a...More

It's behind glass not like you can see it well or approach it. Trip advisor wants me to say more. However there's not much more to say. It's a bell with a cool historic that you can hardly view

Nice place to visit, but long lines and very crowed. We waited until 4:30pm when the lines were shorter.

May be the waiting area outside should be modernized, and with an added screen and constant commentary. We were asked to go an hour before our time and there are hardly enough benches to sit on.

This was a short tour, but interesting. You have to get tickets. They are free at the visitor center but they go fast so they reccommend either getting there right at 8:30 when they open, or reserving them online for $1.50 a ticket in advance....More
