Our family was visiting from Florida, and none of us had been here before. We all greatly enjoyed learning more about our great country. The tour guide was great and very interactive and informative. A must see/do experience if you go to Philadelphia!

History was made here. If you're an American and are in Philadelphia you go to Independence Hall. That's just what you do. That and see the Liberty Bell.

This is a nice small museum that is a must do for all visitors to Philadelphia. The bell is displayed much nicer than it used to be and you have a cool place to escape the summer heat for a while.

This is one the most significant locations in Philadelphia. It was a must for me and I visited several times in my 4 day stay. The location is not very crowded. It makes me sad to see that many people were not there to view...More

Talk about walking through history! You really need to either reserve in advance or get on line in person in the morning to get tickets so you can go through Independence Hall and get the full tour experience. Our tour guide was great! He really...More

Makes you proud to be from US. The Rangers are most helpful in explaining what actually happened in this wonderful building.

Yes it is, all level with wide access doors
I'm arriving by Amtrak at 1:30pm, and then departing for NYC at 7:15pm with my family. Hoping to hop on light rail and see Independence Hall. But it worries me that tickets may be gone. Is there a way I can reserve or get tickets early online?

Check website. I think the tickets are free at this time.
How much time should be allowed for the Independence Hall Tour (including picking up tickets and queuing in security line) and Liberty Bell tour?

Including tour and all, I would say about 1 1/2 hours. We went on a weekday so it wasn't too long of a wait getting tickets or in any lines.
