Very long line but it always move in 1-2 minutes. Am sure people may shock if you saw the line. But good knowledge about America.

A very well laid out and informative site. Worth the short wait and great for children. Definitely include the house of Thomas Jefferson too.

You stand in the room where the Declaration of Independence was signed- very cool. The tour is ok and lasts about 45 minutes. The building off to the side where the first Congress was held is also really cool and has an interesting history. Dress warmly!! You will be waiting outside even if it is cold!

We came here with our CA family, and all of us loved it. Naturally, my husband and I have been here several times, but it was their first time. Actually, it does not matter how many times you visit, you are always wonder struck that you are standing on the same spots as our Founding Fathers. The Building is very... More

Must to see in Philadelphia. It will give you very good history lesson and will bust your patriotism. Good for kids older then 10.

We visited on Thanksgiving day after the parade and before going on a dinner cruise. Had an hour or two to fill. This was a free option for us to enjoy. We parked on a nearby street which had free parking due to the holiday. There was a line to get into the exhibit, but it moved fast and was... More

Nicely set out and good state park guide, the building is great to walk around with the knowledge that this is the birthplace of US independence (even though we are British) so would recommend a visit for everyone and best of all its FREE.

This tour gives great information, knowledge, and facts about history in that very building. Great learning experience for young teens and children.

This is a larger-than-life place that is, physically speaking, smaller than one might think. It is in the heart of Philadelphia; it is open for visitation at specific hours for the interior, but the exterior can be visited up close day and night. There are statues and other pieces of history around within a few blocks in most directions. Come... More
