“Worth the line”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

This is just one of those things you hear about all of your life and then get to see. Loved the museum leading up to it (take time to go through that).

“Very cool place!”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We were passing through on our way from NYC to DC and decided to stop and see one of the nation's greatest symbols. There was a line in the hot sun, but once inside, it was so worth the wait! It was amazing to hear my 7 year old read about the history of the Liberty bell and how it cracked. We got some really good pictures too!

“Long lines”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Lines to get in were very long. Have patients, it moves quickly. Also, parking is at a premium. Be aware that parking enforcement is ever present, so don't let your meter/prepay street parking time expire.

“Long line but at least you are seeing history”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Quite a wait in hot weather to see the Liberty Bell. Once inside, it's a nice air conditioned attraction with the highlight, or course, the Liberty bell itself. Lots of people taking pictures all around it so it's hard to take a photo without someone in the back ground. Unlike Constitution Hall, you don't need tickets for the Liberty Bell. It's free so you should stop by if you are in Philly.

“Liberty Bell up close”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Can't believe that they don't charge to see it. Right in between the Visitor Center and Independence Hall between 6th and Market Sts. We had a line at the end of June and I'm sure it's the same all summer. The line looked like it stretched for miles but I don't think we waited more than 20min. Shorter wait time than most people spend in line waiting to rid a roller coaster and more educational! You have a bag check before you get in and then there are a series of informative panels and items to view about the bell and its history as well a some memorabilia. You can get close enough and pictures are permitted. If you don't want to wait in line the Liberty Bell is surrounded by glass on 3 sides and you can see it from the backside near Independence Hall. This was my 3rd time seeing the bell and it still was impressive.
