I was really surprised by this. Seeing the Liberty Bell is great but not the highlight of this visit. There is a really nice interactive exhibit in the front about slavery and abolition that was really moving.

Independence National Historical Park covers over a mile of historical landmarks, parks and hidden gems in downtown Philadelphia. It is a shame that people only take the time to visit the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Spend a few days and see it all. My favorite is the Benjamin Franklin Museum in Franklin Court.

I was expecting more from this historic site. The set up is very basic with information and pictures on the walls.

On a recent trip, we stopped to see Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Took the tour in Independence Hall; nice but do not expect to much. It was very short, some good info, did not ask for questions. Do go see it but read a book about it, you will get much more than the tour.

Every citizen of the United States should spend a day at this National Park. We cannot understand who we are as a nation unless we undertand what our Founders had in mind.

You hear about the Liberty Bell all your life, but until you actually come and see the thing you just can't appreciate the magic and splendor of our founding.

The area and buildings adjacent to Independence Hall, Carpenter Hall, the Liberty Bell, George Washington's home, contain a fascinating record of the early stages of our unique nation. There are meaningful historical records, interactive activities, picnic areas to instruct and entertain all ages.

There are few national icons that compare to the Liberty Bell. Preserved in its own building, this bell is far more than the symbol of this country -- it is a piece of history that should never be forgotten. If you are in the historic district, make sure you stop by.
