When you research Philadelphia, you find out so much about the history of the city. One of the main places to visit is the Liberty Bell Centre, this is free of charge and has a queue of about 20minutes. In the building there are walls of art and historic information. Take time to read this before you see the Liberty Bell at the end. It is very impressive and we are glad we went to see it and gained an insight into the history of this beautiful city.

Really cool to see a piece of history up close. Make sure to read about it in the hallway leading to it. We did not have the patience and relied on my niece for some fun facts but it would have been better to know a bit more.

Very informative and well laid out. The thing to see if you only have time to see one thing. It weighs 2080 pounds and is three feet tall.

Liberty Bell is a household name in every American family. The symbol of the American Revolution, it is a must-go for locals. No ticket required but do come early to avoid long queue. Do remember, it is like a pilgrimage for those grown up in the United States.

To just stand next to the Liberty Bell is so humbling, worth the short line to go through security glad they have that need to protect this great history

Just neat- because it's the Liberty Bell. You'll be in line forever. In case you are like me and you brought your dog--- NO - you will not be able to bring him in (hopefully I'm saving someone the line wait to be turned out). But... that being said-- if you are facing the clocktower direction and walk along the left side of the building it's in (go past the line and keep going)- there is a glass wall area where you can see a great view of it from outside. BTW- the ranger there was great- :)

This was meant to be a short stop on our day in Philly, I didn't plan to actually go inside, but as it turned out to be free, we thought we would pay the bell a visit! We waited maybe 20 minutes to get in, then spent a further 20 minutes inside. It was the stand out attraction in Philly for us.

Very well managed site with free entry. Explanation of its origin and importance by Park Ranger was extremely well done.

Without a doubt it is a place of Historical importance, a nice musuem that is free of charge, my biggest complaint however is the fact that for such an attraction it has an enormous line and took me 2 hours just to get in. The management is sloppy but workable
