Despite the building being small, the layout is good so traffic can flow smoothly. There's good information between the front door and the actual bell, but you can easily skip it all if you'd like. I was surprised by how little "protection" there is around...More

Be ready for the security check. Once past security the layout is easy to get around. There is a lot of history.

It's not so much that there is a lot to see here, but I do think everyone should see it. I must admit--for me, it was kind of weird. My family visited about 40 years ago. I was 6 or 7 at the time. In...More

This city is all about history and liberty bell is a must see. It’s free but there can be a long line. We enjoyed reading the panels of information about the making of the nation. The bell waits at the end.

Okay, it's just a large bell, but the city has created an interpretation center surrounding the bell that has really made this an interesting stop in Historic Philadelphia - and it's free. As a lifelong Philadelphia resident, we see it with every visitor. If there...More

Very easy to walk to museum and it is free. Nice history plaques beforehand giving solid information of meaning and steps for the bell and then history of it being preserved.

A great place to visit, well laid out with the history of the bell. Get there early as the queue builds up quickly. Once in, there is no pressure, you just move at your own rate. And of course the best bit is the bell...More
