    Of course it's amazing. But be on your best behavior: we saw security remove some people from the display. Be patient for pictures in front of the bell. It does get extremely busy.

    Usually a good sized line for this. Get your tickets for Independence Hall first (at the Visitor Ctr) and than check out the Bell. Might time it right to go to Hall afterword for your time slot.

    If the lines are long, you can get pictures from the back windows of the building. You get just as close as going inside, since the guards keep you so far back.

    If you're in a hurry and have limited city center time, you can see the bell through the glass from the outside of the center and not have to wait in the slow moving line.
