We went on a cold, windy day in February. While we had to stand outside for 15 minutes for the tour to start due to some restoration work taking place on site, we thoroughly enjoyed the 30 minute tour!

I have to say, I was expecting a much larger bell! There is a line for airport like security. Ours moved pretty quickly. The displays leading up to the bell were really impressive, so I guess the bell was a bit of a let down. But hey, you can't come and not see it! I found away to take a... More

Pretty well organized. The line moves quickly but go early to avoid a longer wait. The park rangers were friendly and knowledgeable. And not just about the Liberty Bell. While you're waiting, ask them about other attractions in Philly.

My husband and I went in the morning and queued for an hour in the heat. My son and his friend went in the afternoon and walked straight in. The bell is awesome and the information boards were really interesting. Especially for us English who haven't grown up with the history. If you're in Philadelphia you can't miss it.

This is a really cool and unique piece of history and even for the 'less-than-historians' among us, will be an enjoyable and memorable trip. The exhibition on display leading up to seeing the actual bell is really interesting and lasts a good amount of time before boring you into switch off mode. Suitable for all of the family and a...
