I saw the Liberty Bell many years ago before they built this new center. There are several historical displays before you get to the bell itself, bringing context to the times and to Liberty itself. Like almost everything in this part of Philly, it's a...More

Seeing the actual Liberty Bell and reading about its history and what it means to the USA was fascination. Worth a visit but don't plan on spending more than 30 mins... but it is free!

Since I last visited, years ago, they have built a whole building to showcase the Liberty Bell. The video is especially good. Be prepared for airport-type security checks at the entrance, but it's still worth the visit.

Arrived when it opened and went right in. Located in an airy building with displays in the area leading up to the actual Liberty Bell. You are able to stand right next to it but of course not touch. Very impressive site and well displayed.

Yes, it is just a bell, but a really cool one with significant history, read up on it before you go and get a selfie, you will be glad you did. Come early and avoid the line. Don't miss Independance Hall and the oldest cobblestone...More
