One of the members in our group was elderly and couldn't keep up the the whole tour. There were lots of nice benches under shaded trees in a well-kept park area for her to wait for the group.

The Historical Park has many aspects that could take a few hours to explore. The Visitor Center is welcoming and the Rangers were easy to engage and learn more about the deep history of Philly.

The Liberty Bell is here in a really nice visitor center. The grounds are quite nice and there is history every direction that you look.

I remember the bell as being larger when I was a child. It is nice that you can get very close to it and the visit is free.
