It was an honor to stand in the same room as the founding fathers when they signed the declaration of independence. We had a great tour guide who went over the history of the building.

Very moving and emotional visit. Tour guide was great. America is blessed. We need to appreciate our founding fathers and the toil, grief, and blood shed so we can live free.

Visited here while on holiday for a week. It was really interesting finding out about Philadelphia’s history. The exhibits are well laid out and you are not rushed through so you can spend as much or as little time as you want.

We had just seen Hamilton in DC a few days before our visit to Philly which heightened our appreciation of Independence Hall. Our tour guide was articulate and the pace of the tour was just right. A national treasure.

This building is so full of history and the park rangers add a lot to your tour by their talking. To see the place where the Declaration and Constitution were drafted is heartwarming.

History buffs dream and a very knowledgeable staff. You get the sense of American history and see where it all took place. Tickets are easily obtainable at the visitor center.

Thanks, it's right in the city but if you see the map on the side, it shows Coatesville, PA if you browse the "browse nearby" when you are visiting Coatesville or the area. If you filter by attraction, it shows Liberty Bell... More
