Start you tour at the Visitors' Center across the street. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and informative. You have some time to roam on your own in addition to the narrated tour. Great!

I was expecting that we'd be given a tour of the entire building but at the time of our visit, we only saw the two rooms on the ground level.

Went to the site with a child and there was a line due to the event in the city more than likely. The staff were pleasant and helped move things along. There was a lot to see and read and an opportunity to take pictures...More

As an integral part of the development of the USA the Liberty Bell and the museum surrounds are a must see, for anyone interested in the formation history of the USA.

If you visit in the summer, make sure to allow extra time for the long lines. It is an interesting place, but there are so many other paces in Philadelphia you could see rather than waiting in line here.

The Liberty Bell exhibit is not to be missed! So much more to it than just the bell. Every civics class in the country should be mandated to go! Right across the street is Independence Hall perfect!

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.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sofitel. It's a great location and beautiful hotel. There are several great options though.
