You can see and take photos with the Liberty Bell there. I arrived on Sunday late morning and found a long queue outside of the centre. Don't be scare by this. It only took me around 15-20 mins to get into the centre. Well worth a visit.

The line can be quit long. If you just want to see it, you can walk on the right side and go to the end. Look in the window and see the bell. Even if you go inside, you can't touch it but they have other displays to see.

The monument holds more than just history but symbolism for more now than ever. The site is free to visit once you pass through security. To see the liberty bell was a grounding experience. We could all take note from our forefathers and what they wanted for this country.

The Liberty Bell Center is on the southeast corner of 6th & Market St. in Philadelphia. After a quick security checkpoint, like the airport, but you leave your shoes on, you are in the Center. There is a self directed museum display area on your left which leads you up to the Liberty Bell on the exit side of the... More

We are hugely patriotic and have been here before and it is an amazing, free attraction. We were here and there was a plethora of school trips to the surrounding attractions and that gets old rather quickly. Nevertheless, it is a great must see, just beware as the abundance of school trips can make things a bit challenging. Do not... More

I was a little bit confused about ticketing at first. You DO NOT need tickets to see the Liberty Bell. You DO need tickets to see Independence Hall. There is simply a line for the Liberty Bell, which you get in. You go through security where your bag goes through an x-ray and you go through a metal-detector. Real easy.... More

Very well done exhibit at one of our National Parks! What a thrill to get to see this piece of history up close and personal! A little bit of a line but it moved at a good pace. Lots of info to read about the bell once you enter and then plenty of room to walk all the way around... More

This attraction is free, but has a very long wait to get in see. With that said it wouldn't be a complete trip to Philadelphia without seeing. Once in the building , you are allowed to spend as much time as you would like.
