If you get to Philadelphia then you really have to visit the liberty bell. Unless you know your American history then the where/why/how of the bell will be a bit of a mystery. But an important symbol for the country. Great exhibit but expect queues - dress warm/dry as much of the waiting will/can be outside. Free to visit and... More

The Liberty Bell Center is far better than the common story of the Liberty Bell. The Liberty Bell story of common legend is more fiction than fact, but the Liberty Bell Center is very well done. This Center should be included in every visit to Independance Park.

A great experience that explained the history of the Liberty Bell. The highlight was seeing the bell itself at the end. Really knowledgable NPS Rangers were in hand to explain and answer questions. The boys loved it. A definite must fir rose interested in the nation's history.

You must take time to read all the information as you go through to the bell. It was very busy when we went although it was christmastime so not sure how it is on a usual week.

We visited this place before entering the main hall, which has the Bell. It has the history of American people, their struggle to achieve Independence and reach this developed stage. Really worth seeing, it was a great learning experience for all age groups. One can spend time indoors, saving themselves for hot sun, rains or chilling cold winds!!!

Visited the Liberty Bell Center after exiting Independence Hall as it is just across the street. Very informative; I learned a lot about the different uses of the bell in history.

We were there on a very cold Sunday morning in January. Hardly anyone was there. We learned a lot and even if you're not a history buff it's a great place to visit. You can walk right up to the bell and take pictures. Amazing place!! Every American should visit the Liberty Bell!!
