I am confused about some poor reviews posted about Indenepdence Park. It is exactly as advertised, a look at Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell and some informational displays. The object is to keep these things accessible and allow the public to experience the feeling of history they represent. Not many frills and certainly nothing very high tech. Doesn't need to... More

Many others will be in line to see it too. So there is a long wait. However you just want to see it through the window, you can do it. Walk on the right side to the end and just look through the window.

Beautiful new museum. Quite large and very well done so it does not seem overwhelming. Lots of exhibits, plenty of interesting descriptions about the picture, displays etc. Wish there had been fewer, but longer videos so you could have a better sens of the progression of the War .Interesting about the role of the slaves but a little preachy. role...

We went for a road trip down history lane and found ourselves here. The intense security and lines can be a bit of detraction but the history can not be undermined. The amazing history this place has to offer can not be understated. We loved taking it all it.

Had expected this to be on view in the middle of a park. No, it was inside a building with a line an hour long, not something I would line up for. The park surrounding it was hosting an all day religious revival of some sort. Also not the kind of thing I would subject myself to for an hour.... More

Tour of Independence Hall was cool because of the historical significance and good docents. Grounds are in disrepair and trashy, poorly kept. Visitors Center was unorganized and dirty, trash everywhere, and the movie was horrible, probably 40 years old. This was embarrassing for our country.

This visit couldn't of happened at a better time. It really gave context to what my daughter was learning in school, and was excited to share with her teacher what she saw & learned. It was just as exciting for us parents as well.

We love National Parks and this one did not disappoint. We went on a very rainy day but still very much enjoyed it. We reserved tickets online for Independence Hall, and standing in such a historic building was amazing. We also saw original drafts of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, and visited Congress Hall. The Liberty Bell has a... More
