If you are coming for the historical sites & buildings (and didn't do your homework, like me) this is the best place to start. The park service people were very helpful and informative. You get your free tix here for Independence Hall tour as well. Nice gift shop, too.

Get your FREE tickets to see Independence Hall from the National Park rangers here.

Note that there are numerous kiosks in the building which sell tickets to other attractions. Don't get suckered in if your intent is only to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.

It was fun at the visitor center. A lot of shopping and interesting stuff! I liked the Rocky statue! We saw the man playing the musical instrument Dulcimer, it was fun!

My wife and I visited the Independence Visitor Center to get an overview of what historic Philadelphia has to offer. It has two small theaters which show informative films touting the events that formed our country. It is within two blocks of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. It is a good starting point to begin the historic touring of downtown Philadelphia.

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.
