Boring to visit the bell but worth doing anyway since it has a place in our countries history. See this only after you have visited more interesting local historical sites.

just to see and be that close to something with so much history, reading the stories as you walk towards the bell is great in itself.

Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell are a must see when traveling to Philadelphia. Mornings are best before the lines as it can get crowded, but there is so much history here and in the surrounding neighborhood.

If you get to Philadelphia then you really have to visit the liberty bell. Unless you know your American history then the where/why/how of the bell will be a bit of a mystery. But an important symbol for the country. Great exhibit but expect queues - dress warm/dry as much of the waiting will/can be outside. Free to visit and... More

The Liberty Bell Center is far better than the common story of the Liberty Bell. The Liberty Bell story of common legend is more fiction than fact, but the Liberty Bell Center is very well done. This Center should be included in every visit to Independance Park.

A great experience that explained the history of the Liberty Bell. The highlight was seeing the bell itself at the end. Really knowledgable NPS Rangers were in hand to explain and answer questions. The boys loved it. A definite must fir rose interested in the nation's history.

You must take time to read all the information as you go through to the bell. It was very busy when we went although it was christmastime so not sure how it is on a usual week.
