“Great architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2012

Wish it was open on weekend. We wanted to go up in the tower to stand at the foot of Willi Penn but it was closed.

“Decent time killer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 September 2012

The historian in there was very informative and explained the history of Old City Hall well. However, there is really not much to see so your time there is quick.

The staff was thorough and interesting. What a neat place to see and hear history. We really appreciated this free visit. Definitely should see this when you are in Philly.

“Former Supreme Court”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2012

Neat to see, but definitely ask questions. The exhibit where you first walk in is a little text heavy, but all very interesting stuff--way before the Declaration and Constitution. =)

“Great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2012

Only four at a time so no crowds. Terrific view from the top. Would be even better if it were open air (like the Eiffel Tower). Very nice and informative staff will keep you company while you await the elevator.
