not to be missed; see all three rooms; very important part of our history. Tour guides (free) are great. But get tickets first at the Visitor Center; you can reserve online in advance, which I strongly recommend.

We “ran” up the Rocky steps, walked through Chinatown, ate Philly cheesesteaks, checked out the Liberty Bell— but my favorite part of Philadelphia was Liberty Hall! It’s almost nothing like I expected and is one of the only things I’d go back to Philly for.

It was a holiday Monday so the line was long, but it was nice outside so it was fine. You get historical talks about the two rooms downstairs. The upstairs is closed.

Didn't get a chance to go through the tour first time but made it today. Wish I could remember our guide but she was AWESOME. Look forward to bringing my family one day.

Went there already closed, but I could see the bell from outside, it's quite charming. Walked around the area and it's a nice area.

Thanks, it's right in the city but if you see the map on the side, it shows Coatesville, PA if you browse the "browse nearby" when you are visiting Coatesville or the area. If you filter by attraction, it shows Liberty Bell... More
