    You can only get into independence hall with tickets (free!) from the visitor center down the street. They're free, and assign you a time slot for your tour.

    In the Assembly Room of this National Historic Site in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was adopted and a new nation was born. Visit the birthplace of America for history and charm.

    Get timed ticket at the Visitors Center and walk across to the tour start at 5th & Chestnut. Tour is remarkably low-key, leaving the setting as the main focus as it should be.

    Try to get your tickets as soon as possible during times of the year when it's busy, otherwise you will have to try to get squeezed in if they run out.
