Open year round and for most of the day with extended hours in the summer months. Meet Ben Franklin and learn how to write with a quill pen. Can get your photo with the Rocky statue too. In the facility there is central parking for a fee, restrooms, air-conditioning and food for purchase. Lots of helpful people and tour guides. This is where you get your tickets for most of the attractions. There is also a gift shop.

From the air conditioning to the bathrooms, the affordable priced food to well stocked gift shop. The free historical movies and historical exhibits, you can't go wrong. Go here to get tickets for Independence Hall EARLY in the day before they run out. Tickets are free, but timed. You can also get info on other Philly attractions too!

the review title says it all, you can get food, souvenirs but not much else, except you can also buy tickets for the hop on hop off bus here, and that is a must for Philadelphia.
