We went there on a Sunday and as expected, people are already lining up. Even though the line is long, everybody was in order. Upon entering the exhibit hall, you will be greeted by an airport style security checkup. I would suggest that if you...More

If you want to be sure to get, make sure you get your ticket online before you go. Our guide, Mike, a former history teacher from Reading, was incredibly insightful and gave a lot of great information.

We did not get to go in Independence Hall because you have to go to the Visitor Center at 8:00 am to stand in line to maybe get a time-stamped ticket to come back to get into a tour of Independence Hall. Very Disappointing!

Over three days we toured all the attractions in this area. Wished more people would visit here, especially with families. Feel like a lot of our heritage is being lost. This place will reaffirm all you love about this country!!

I took my 11 month old son ( who couldn’t have cared less). I enjoyed it though. We saw the Liberty Bell. It’s nice that it’s free. A bit of a wait to get in, but worth it.

No, you will need to park and do yourself a favor: take another form of transport to get to that downtown area.
