Though it can no longer be rung, the bell remains a lasting American symbol of freedom.

There is no entrance fee. Line was fast despite the security check. Impressive history overview through the center. Very simple, yet beautiful home for the liberty bell.

The Liberty Bell center has done an excellent job of focusing visitors on how the bell became an icon of freedom and a symbol of anti-slavery for the abolitionist Movement. There are several TVs outside of the center that run all through the day telling...More

Seeing the actual Liberty Bell and reading about its history and what it means to the USA was fascination. Worth a visit but don't plan on spending more than 30 mins... but it is free!

Since I last visited, years ago, they have built a whole building to showcase the Liberty Bell. The video is especially good. Be prepared for airport-type security checks at the entrance, but it's still worth the visit.

This was a wonderful experience. The museum had great exhibits that lead up to the liberty bell and what it stands for. One other amazing thing is it is FREE to go through the exhibit. You don't find that too much any more.
