    Pretty neat, but then they guard told me everything was burned by the British, so these were just "imaginary setups". :(

    If the weather's good, laze around on the park in front of the Hall! Great for people watching with a bit of quiet.

    Pretty cool place! Near the airport - I had an extra 20 minutes in Philadelphia and managed to see the Liberty Bell and Constitutional Hall.

    Home of the Second Continental Congress from 1775 to 1783 and the Constitutional Convention in the summer of 1787

    Historical, easy to get around, fun to walk through all the buildings

    Unreal. Easily one of the coolest experiences I've ever had. You HAVE to wait in line and take the tour of the inside. Breathtaking views into history.

    Colin Nelson · September 16, 2015
  • Marialexandra

    Start here and work your way to the rest of the buildings after. The tour is short but full of great information & history.

    Pick up your free tix at the Visitors center first! All tours are timed. So get your tix and then head to the Liberty Bell after you've got them while you wait your turn. No tix needed for bell tour.

    Impress your fellow tour members with a rendition of your favorite musical number from "1776." I went with "Sit Down, John!"

  • Nick S.

    Tour guides are enthusiastic and engaging! Make sure to get tickets at the visitor center before approaching the building. Daily parking rate underneath was about $20, less if you did hourly.

  • @HeyJK

    So - if the visitor's center says it's sold out, go and stand in the line anyway. The Park Rangers let people in if there are open seats

    We took the free tour. The tour ranger was very passionate about the story of Independence Hall, and the tour was short and sweet

    Get your free tour tickets early. They can run out by 2pm on busy days. Well worth seeing where it all began.

    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.

    One of our National Treasures. Go through security and take the free tour. Park Rangers will discuss rooms with you as well as American History.

    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.

    You can only go in with a tour group. They like to rush you and get mad when you are a little behind.
