If you are limited in time and visiting Independence Park, the Liberty Bell is a must see...no advanced reservations or timed entry passes needed (like Independence Hall), so unless there are lengthy lines, you can get through in a short amount of time.

This exhibit is very well done. They tell you a lot about the history of the bell. Civil rights related to it. And then you see the historic bell. Went on a Friday and the line was minimal. If you're into history you must visit.

It's been 25 years since my last visit to the Liberty Bell. The improvements that they have made to the site are wonderful! It is now housed in a "center" which truly showcases its history and importance. When you get to the bell, you are treated to a great photo op as it is located in a large space with... More

We went on a cold, windy day in February. While we had to stand outside for 15 minutes for the tour to start due to some restoration work taking place on site, we thoroughly enjoyed the 30 minute tour!

You can't go to Philadelphia without seeing the Liberty Bell. There are some nice graphics and displays about the bell inside, but you can see the bell from outside without waiting in the line. The crack side is facing inward, but if you are okay not seeing the crack, I think looking through the window is fine. As with many... More

I have to say, I was expecting a much larger bell! There is a line for airport like security. Ours moved pretty quickly. The displays leading up to the bell were really impressive, so I guess the bell was a bit of a let down. But hey, you can't come and not see it! I found away to take a... More

Pretty well organized. The line moves quickly but go early to avoid a longer wait. The park rangers were friendly and knowledgeable. And not just about the Liberty Bell. While you're waiting, ask them about other attractions in Philly.
