So much history in this city, I was amazed by the origins of the liberty bell and how it’s name came to be. Great museum.

Ppl wait hours to see the liberty bell. Do yourself a favor and walk by it from outside. You will miss a lot of you wait in line. Go explore elsewhere.

Can't miss this historical area with multiple spots to visit. It is interesting and informative to take a look at the liberty bell and halls where our country was created as we continue the neverending struggle to create a wonderful country. Most stops were free and I had no trouble getting a ticket to see the Bell when I visited in the morning. I got a 12:20 time and did notice at about 11:30 the sign went up that no more tickets were available, so visit early.

Get the junior rangers workbook for your kids. My boys loved it and it gave them things to search for while we read plaques etc. Aldo made them pay attention to rangers’ tour.

Be sure to ask a Park Ranger for trading cards!
