The area is set with the Liberty Bell display right across the street form Independence Hall. There as a lot of activity on the Mall the day we were there. This is a necessary part of any visit to Philly.

Nice display. Educational. No charge to enter though they do accept donations near the liberty bell. The Liberty bell sits at the far end of the building and can be seen from outside as well. Everyone is taking advantage of the photo op and they are all pretty generous about taking your picture for you if you return the favor.... More

This is a great change to see the bell up close. The line can get quite long, so best to get there early. If your time is limited, or you get there after closing, you can still see the bell through the window. It is even lit up at night.

Independence Park should be on everyone's "to do" list while in Philadelphia. The beauty is wonderful in itself, but the history is what I'll remember. It only takes a few minutes to get through the display, and it's free to enter.

The security around the Liberty Bell is very stringent. It took us several minutes to figure out where exactly the Bell is located. There are several small displays in the building as well. Otherwise not that much to see other than the bell itself.

Everyone should see the Liberty Bell up close and personal at least one time in their life. It is displayed in a light-filled alcove, and you can easily have your picture taken with it as you view it from all sides. The lines can be long, but move quickly. Don't miss this if you visit Philly.

Great to walk through and remember our American heritage. Seeing the Liberty Bell and other displays made this very special. A must for families to bring their children to appreciate our heritage.

A wonderful array of exhibits flank the walls as you make your way to the "bell"! It's tough to get a crowd free photo but the whole park is such a wonderful place to stroll and learn about our nations past.

The Park Service tour guides are the stars of this place--they must have a competition to get the Independence Hall gig, because these folks are GOOD! They are basically old buildings with old furniture in them, but them come to life under the spell cast by these park ranger storytellers. Makes the hair stand up on the back of your... More
