I am married to a history teacher. So my review is most likely biased. I will admit however, don't tell him, that I am not always as interested in history as he is. BUT, this is a must. So informative. Just a great stop.

Very neat area in downtown Philly. Very historic and informative. Just like how it was years ago (I imagine). Very close to old cemetery and Liberty Bell.

You can select if you want a self guided tour or an actual guided one. Pretty simple to walk around and take pictures I loved it.

Although the bell is cracked and could be upgraded, this is the thing to see in Philadelphia. Obviously, this has huge significance and you must not miss it. There is so much history here and the area around it.

Yes it is, all level with wide access doors
I'm arriving by Amtrak at 1:30pm, and then departing for NYC at 7:15pm with my family. Hoping to hop on light rail and see Independence Hall. But it worries me that tickets may be gone. Is there a way I can reserve or get tickets early online?

Including tour and all, I would say about 1 1/2 hours. We went on a weekday so it wasn't too long of a wait getting tickets or in any lines.
