While waiting in line for the Liberty Bell we noticed this center and made a quick restroom stop. After our viewing we went back over to the center and did some awesome shopping. Very cute things for everyone.

This is a large center with lots of information and two small theaters , each showing a different short (approx 20 min) film about Philadelphia and its place in history. Very worthwhile to start here.

A nice place to visit to see some of the free displays and exhibits. The visitor center has restrooms which comes in handy if you are walking around this historical area. The center also has one of the better gift shops, too. It's a nice place to take a break.

From here begins everything ... maps, tickets, information office. Close to many of Philadelphia's attractions, right in front of the Liberty Bell.
