Nice relaxing place out of bustle. Liberty Bell enclosure right there, reconstructed base of George Washington's house, cemetery full of famous bones if you're lucky enough the gate is unlocked. Go early to see the bell- free... but the lines on a nice day can be horrendous. The usual metal detectors and take all outer wear off for the x-ray... More

Disappointed at how much was under renovation at the same time. Probably will look much different by summer. Right now not much for photos unless you like construction look good news everything is so close together to experience for young children. Park service does a great job.

Learn about the early political history of the United States and experience the historical settings and artifacts associated with it. Guides provide effective commentary and displays are well described. A must see if you do anything at all in Philadelphia.

Great place to spend a few hours. Plenty of green spaces to enjoy and with all of the National Park Service historic cites, you can enjoy the outdoors, enjoy the outside, etc. Saw singles, couples, pet families, friends, groups, etc.

A great open green space where you can reflect on the incredible history surrounding you. You almost forget you are in Central Philly!!

It is impressive to stand at the Constitution Museum and look at Independence Hall far down the mall.

This was a sobering visit. It was emotional to realize that these were the rooms that our forefathers walked in and founded our nation. Don't miss it!

This is a very nice destination for a weekend in Philadelphia with or without kids. The Liberty Bell, the visitor center, Independence Hall and the open grass make this really nice. Around the edge is the mint, federal reserve bank, Ben Franklin's grave and a number of other attractions. This is also a start point for walking, Segway and bus... More
