This is a must see for those interested in the Declaration of Independence. It takes a ticket to get into Independence Hall and those can be gotten at the Visitors Center when it opens on the day of the visit. It is a guided tour...More

We did not get to go in Independence Hall because you have to go to the Visitor Center at 8:00 am to stand in line to maybe get a time-stamped ticket to come back to get into a tour of Independence Hall. Very Disappointing!

Over three days we toured all the attractions in this area. Wished more people would visit here, especially with families. Feel like a lot of our heritage is being lost. This place will reaffirm all you love about this country!!

I took my 11 month old son ( who couldn’t have cared less). I enjoyed it though. We saw the Liberty Bell. It’s nice that it’s free. A bit of a wait to get in, but worth it.

It could have been a fluke but we were there on a Sunday morning around 10:30am and there was just a small line to get through security. Once past security you can read through the exhibits to learn more or head straight to the bell....More

Yes open till 6 pm. But I’d triple check before going down. It’s a great experience.
