This building has a delightful tour and is not at all crowded. There is a lot of history and guide was very informative and willing to answer questions. The best thing was that you were not rushed through and had time to go back at the end to look around some more. GO!!!

The lecture was kind of boring. I wished it would have been more enthusiastic then about to put us to sleep. Other then that it was cool to be in the hall.

Take time to visit Congress Hall. If you like history and enjoy learning more about this interesting time in our country's start then check this place out. The staff are knowledgeable.

We took the 20 minute tour of Congress hall. There are no tickets for this attraction, however we only waited about 5 minutes to get in. We were all seated in the House of Representatives and the ranger stood in the middle and gave an animated accounting of the building's history. The second part of the tour was upstairs in the Senate. This part was a little shorter and we had to stand. We also got to look in into some of the offices while we were upstairs. This tour is definitely worth your time.

Some people are so focused on Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell that they overlook other important things to see, like Congress Hall. Don't miss seeing this and learning about how it serves to complete the picture of our nation's start.
