Although I am sure it is the off-season, there were still a lot of people milling around. It was not overcrowded though. It's a wide open laid out space see you can mill through it slowly at your own leisure

The original, former home of the Liberty Bell and now a great stop to those who appreciate American history and the birth place of the Declaration of Independence. The park ranger/guide was very informative and was a pleasure to listen to as she reminded us of details to this important part of America's development. Also the location for the highest... More

This is free so get there earlier. Traveling in the off season is the best. We were able to walk right up and get a ticket and walk right in. Good interacting displays.

Free, historical, and the grand finale at the end of your walk, the Liberty Bell. Nice history, with there was more about bells themselves and the process. Much of the history presented is what the bell represents for people through the ages.

Is very interesting this place to visit it but you have to be ready to wait on the lines to go in. Is better if you arrive early 🙄

Since my years in elementary school I had known of the Liberty Bell and its association with American independence so it was one of the sites my wife and I hoped to see on our trip to Philadelphia. We were able to visit on a Friday afternoon about an hour before the site was to close. The admission was free... More

We went to the centre on a wet day which meant a reduced number of people visiting giving us plenty of elbow room to enjoy a gentle amble around the well presented series of information displays. Definitely worth a visit but would advise planning on warm days in the summer as we were led to believe that queuing can be... More

This is it! The Liberty Bell! No ticket necessary just walk in. The view of Independence Hall from the glass wall, behind the Liberty Bell is awesome!

History at its finest. A must see place for tourists to visit. Parking around the area can be difficult so leave plenty of time to look.

I was there when the Liberty Bell was moved from Independence Hall to the new pavilion. A heavy rain portended our current state, the Bell being the perfect symbol of our diminished liberty. As a teen I could approach and touch the Bell without concern of reproach. The bell now stands just out of reach behind ceremonial ropes, as a... More
