Very nice to see the liberty bell, line tends to be long since you do have to go through the metal detector so dress warm on those cold days. Otherwise, nice attraction.

Such an historic place, it's worth doing if you can, but tickets can be difficult to get. You are shown just the two main rooms of the ground floor with a ranger. The group size is large and the talk/tour itself lasts no more than...More

Located in a small museum in a small plaza, it is very impressive. Interactive kiosks tells the history of the Bell and United States. The Bell is roped off section making it easy to take pictures of where it sits in the hall. Great experience

A beautiful piece of history which is a must for visitors. It is definitely important to plan ahead and get tickets in the morning to avoid potentially very long lines.

Its a long walk. Subway or Uber is a better option. Parking near the Terminal Market is tight. At Terminal Market try the Bassetts Ice Cream-oldest ice cream stand in America and its really good.
