Liberty Bell. In early May. Long long line to get in. But. There's a window that looks directly onto The Bell - and offers a good photo op without enduring the long lines.
Tomb of the Unknown (Revolutionary). Excellent memorial. Actually peacefully located in Washington Square, away from the crowds.
National Constitution Center. Almost worthless. One would think there'd be a copy of what document inside???? Duh: The Constitution. Nope. There is a room with statues of the signers. But no complete document. Place was packed with children running rampant. Not learning anything, just running, screaming, and being unsuccessfully herded by too few teachers. But there was a special exhibition on slavery during Revolutionary times. Excellent. And empty. For me, both a refuge and a place to learn something in peace.....
Independence Hall. Some excellent exhibitions - once one made it through the scheduling and security process. But I particularly enjoyed.... the Old City Hall... where the first Supreme Courts met for a decade. Again: right next to Independence Hall, but very much... empty. Count the number of chairs for the Justices..... 6. How cool is that!
