We went to the centre on a wet day which meant a reduced number of people visiting giving us plenty of elbow room to enjoy a gentle amble around the well presented series of information displays. Definitely worth a visit but would advise planning on warm days in the summer as we were led to believe that queuing can be... More

This is it! The Liberty Bell! No ticket necessary just walk in. The view of Independence Hall from the glass wall, behind the Liberty Bell is awesome!

History at its finest. A must see place for tourists to visit. Parking around the area can be difficult so leave plenty of time to look.

I was there when the Liberty Bell was moved from Independence Hall to the new pavilion. A heavy rain portended our current state, the Bell being the perfect symbol of our diminished liberty. As a teen I could approach and touch the Bell without concern of reproach. The bell now stands just out of reach behind ceremonial ropes, as a... More

Bring your camera and be sure it's charged. Plenty to see and take pictures of. National Park Service Staff is very friendly and knowledgable. I recommend visiting the area and taking the tour during the day then come back at night to take even more pictures when it's all lit up. Makes for great photo albums and a great online... More

It made us feel strongly patriotic as soon as we entered the pavilion, and saw the Bell with the crack in it. There is so much history behind that crack and that Bell. Once you cross security, there are several pleasant Rangers who willingly answer all your questions. There are also lots of engaging pictures, plaques, and nicely compiled boards... More

Whilst the modern building in which the Bell is housed lacks character, this truly is a very well known iconic object which should be a must see. If you have the time, then the information boards and panels telling the background history are surprisingly interesting. It may be relatively small (But not for a Bell), however in it's way it...

Exhibit was very laid out. It gives brief history and current information on restoration efforts. I really enjoyed seeing all different ages enjoying the "Bell"!Personnel very friendly!

The Liberty Bell is one of the most representative things of Philadelphia, is a must see. I really easy to access the plane and there is no need for reservation prior going to the place.

We got here early enough to avoid the long crowd, but it was as expected and nothing more. The exhibit was basic and if you walk by at night you will get an excellent view of the bell lit up from the outside.
