Great historical park good for sights and reading. A picnic is possible if you're sitting on a bench but not on a ground area. The park is behind the Liberty Bell and Presidents House.

Bummed overall. We had high hopes of a more in depth tour with more information and more coverage (we did travel all the way to Philadelphia to see our nations history after all). We may have just gotten the tour guide that was "just doing his job" but the total tour lasted all of about 20 minutes, didn't include even... More

A visit to the place is an inspirational walk through freedom. We found the stories of hundreds of both famous and hidden heroes of liberty from all backgrounds, tales of the Founding Fathers, touching and beautiful exhibits, historical buildings. Remember to visit Independence Hall, Liberty Bell Center, National Constitution Center, Independence Visitor Center. Liberty is not a relic of the... More

Go on a nice day and walk around outside, reading the various signs and brushing up on history. Then, go inside and read some more history on the Liberty Bell. Take some pictures with the bell once the crowds have dispersed! There's a nice gift shop/restroom/information booth area in a building across the street as well.

The entrance to this national historical park is free and its a MUST visit when you are in Philadelphia. The tour is well organized with many historical information of the Liberty Bell (Past to Present).

An interesting walk through the history before and after independence, including the Liberty Bell itself. Can get VERY busy and be prepared to queue if you really must have your picture taken by the Liberty Bell

Coming from California, this was a very moving learning experience. This will always remain as a walking park. Didn't know that before. It would be good to learn a bit about it before you visit. What it represents is awesome for those who appreciate the history of our country.

Any National Historic Park is always well worth the visit. This one gives some good background information before proceeding to other sites.

The park is well organized and there are plenty of signs to tell you where to go. The best first stop is the educational visitors center. The Liberty Bell and Independence Hall are must sees if you are in the area. The staff was also helpful and friendly. There is security at the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, but they... More
