It's really well laid out and nicely presented, and you truly can come away with a greater appreciation of all that was sacrificed by our founders to make constitutional republic possible - AND you hopefully will be inspired to be a more engaged democratic citizen today

Throughout the area you will find plaques with information about important places and people in the state and place where America was founded.

I was really surprised by this. Seeing the Liberty Bell is great but not the highlight of this visit. There is a really nice interactive exhibit in the front about slavery and abolition that was really moving.

Independence National Historical Park covers over a mile of historical landmarks, parks and hidden gems in downtown Philadelphia. It is a shame that people only take the time to visit the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. Spend a few days and see it all. My favorite is the Benjamin Franklin Museum in Franklin Court.

I was expecting more from this historic site. The set up is very basic with information and pictures on the walls.

On a recent trip, we stopped to see Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Took the tour in Independence Hall; nice but do not expect to much. It was very short, some good info, did not ask for questions. Do go see it but read a book about it, you will get much more than the tour.

Every citizen of the United States should spend a day at this National Park. We cannot understand who we are as a nation unless we undertand what our Founders had in mind.
