This entire area of Philly is a great history lesson for young and old alike. Every person should take the time to visit and learn or relearn.

Allocate enough time to appreciate the Liberty Bell exhibit - there are several kiosks with historical info & videos.

Thank goodness people through the years had the foresight to keep and maintain the cradle of modern democracy.

One of the many sites in the History of this Country that people probably don't give much thought to. Locals probably don't pay much attention to what they have....visitors may be too busy to make time for a tour. For those that make the effort, the reward is great.

Seeing the Liberty Bell up close and standing in the same room as our founding fathers created our form of Government was a more moving experience that I expected. Very powerful.

There's plenty of commercialism in the Visitor's Center, but it's roomy and there are all kinds of people willing to help. I can't say I disagree with the approach....and since it is across the street, the place doesn't take away from the Monuments.

Previous reviewers mention what a great job the Parks Service Personnel do with the tours, and I agree....they are fantastic and make things very interesting. They are very patient with children and take the time to answer any questions, which made the experience even more enjoyable.

I just can't imagine being Born in the USA and not making the effort so see place where our government was conceived.

I spend a few $ to book the tickets advance but I learned that It's not hard to get the tickets on the day for free. The guide I had was a young man doing this as a volunteer. He was very good and had passion about what he does. The tour itself was only 30 min but it was amazing to be in the same place where the history was made.
