I have to say, I was expecting a much larger bell! There is a line for airport like security. Ours moved pretty quickly. The displays leading up to the bell were really impressive, so I guess the bell was a bit of a let down. But hey, you can't come and not see it! I found away to take a... More

Pretty well organized. The line moves quickly but go early to avoid a longer wait. The park rangers were friendly and knowledgeable. And not just about the Liberty Bell. While you're waiting, ask them about other attractions in Philly.

My husband and I went in the morning and queued for an hour in the heat. My son and his friend went in the afternoon and walked straight in. The bell is awesome and the information boards were really interesting. Especially for us English who haven't grown up with the history. If you're in Philadelphia you can't miss it.

It is a great way to learn history, there are guides, photos, videos, fun for kids. It is close to other sites that are worth visiting and are also cost free. Nice city to walk, specially during the Democratic convention, lots of people; great environment

This is a really cool and unique piece of history and even for the 'less-than-historians' among us, will be an enjoyable and memorable trip. The exhibition on display leading up to seeing the actual bell is really interesting and lasts a good amount of time before boring you into switch off mode. Suitable for all of the family and a...

It is always nice to see the Liberty Bell and read about the founding fathers. This is worth a visit. It does not take long to see everything and at least you can say you saw the "Liberty Bell." A bit of Trivia...... there is a Liberty Bell Park in Jerusalem too!

The Liberty Bell center is a great tribute to the bell that once stood in the Pennsylvania State House, now known as Independence Hall. The bell itself is so iconic that all Americans and tourists should see it. The entry to the museum is free and the museum itself is well laid out with the history of the bell and... More
