The Liberty Bell is one of the most famous symbols of freedom in history. Respect what it means. It was in the bell tower in Independence Hall when our country was created and (likely) rang on July 8th when the declaration was read. It traveled...More

Nice during the day, but take time to walk by and around during the night. Very safe and just all around special at nighttime.

The liberty bell centre on 6th and market streets is free to visit. The bell is of huge historical significance having been used to call political forefathers to parliament and then becoming a symbol of the liberal views of the changing times from 1700-1800. The...More

A must-see while in Philadelphia. I saw the Liberty Bell before so many years ago but believe it was in a different location. Glad to see her safe and still admired today.

Poor old bell! The bell makers in UK were probably gutted that it fractured but that's what happens sometimes. Lovely bell tower is now partially surrounded by larger buildings but its own tree filled gardens are a quiet space.

The need for full security measures to view the Liberty Bell seems a little strange to me. Nonetheless, we endured the divestment of all our belongings for examination by the x-ray machine, and I removed my belt because of a metal buckle. After this, and...More

It was so busy the last time we were in Philly we didn't get to actually go inside, but it is kind of a must for American History, there was little wait time at the end of April.
