It made us feel strongly patriotic as soon as we entered the pavilion, and saw the Bell with the crack in it. There is so much history behind that crack and that Bell. Once you cross security, there are several pleasant Rangers who willingly answer all your questions. There are also lots of engaging pictures, plaques, and nicely compiled boards... More

Whilst the modern building in which the Bell is housed lacks character, this truly is a very well known iconic object which should be a must see. If you have the time, then the information boards and panels telling the background history are surprisingly interesting. It may be relatively small (But not for a Bell), however in it's way it...

Exhibit was very laid out. It gives brief history and current information on restoration efforts. I really enjoyed seeing all different ages enjoying the "Bell"!Personnel very friendly!

We got here early enough to avoid the long crowd, but it was as expected and nothing more. The exhibit was basic and if you walk by at night you will get an excellent view of the bell lit up from the outside.

The security screeners are incredibly rude and unprofessional and an embarrassment for our country. If you visit the exhibit you'll understand the irony. The whole experience left a bad taste in my mouth and made it difficult to enjoy the exhibit; i would even say it made a mockery of it. Really, better just to put this bell on display... More

You can't go to Philadelphia and skip the Liberty Bell. Admission is free. You have to go through a security check and the line can get long. It's best to go early. There are exhibits and displays once inside.

Long waits to get in, shorter than in the summer when we decided not to stand in line to see the bell but long enough with a cold wind blowing. Definite plus to the experience - no fee to get in! Have to go thru an airport type security check though.

Right outside the entrance is a fascinating exhibit regarding slavery and the birth of our nation. Inside were many exhibits about the making of the bell and then its iconic meaning 'round the world. And then you get to the bell itself and right there is the crack. You can see the bell while outside the building through the thoughtfully... More

Historical sight and location. A definite must see. However, lines can get very long. Be sure to come early in the day to beat the line.
