We didn't plan ahead and get tickets so I figured we were out of luck. Walked by and there was a sign that tickets weren't needed. Short wait through the security line and no crowd at the Bell. Interesting exhibits. Definitely a travel win!

Its a long walk. Subway or Uber is a better option. Parking near the Terminal Market is tight. At Terminal Market try the Bassetts Ice Cream-oldest ice cream stand in America and its really good.
