The best National Park for history.

Every citizen of the United States should spend a day at this National Park. We cannot understand who we are as a nation unless we undertand what our Founders had in mind.

You hear about the Liberty Bell all your life, but until you actually come and see the thing you just can't appreciate the magic and splendor of our founding.

The area and buildings adjacent to Independence Hall, Carpenter Hall, the Liberty Bell, George Washington's home, contain a fascinating record of the early stages of our unique nation. There are meaningful historical records, interactive activities, picnic areas to instruct and entertain all ages.

There are few national icons that compare to the Liberty Bell. Preserved in its own building, this bell is far more than the symbol of this country -- it is a piece of history that should never be forgotten. If you are in the historic district, make sure you stop by.

A "must see" spot in Philadelphia. Easy to get to - and worth it. It shed light on a part of our American history.

It was always a dream of mine to see the Liberty Bell. Even though I only got to see a few of the displays it was worth the trip for me. Make sure to check the hours and don't go in late like I did. I could have stayed longer and read all of the displays. It is located in... More

We went here before Christmas and at the height of winter. There's not much people visiting the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the surrounding attractions. However, the security checks still creates a longish line and I could imagine the delays when it is peak season. There's not much signs about the historical context of the rooms where the US' first... More

Of course you want to see Independence National Historical Park; whatever time you think you need to see it, add another few hours at least. There are so many spaces in the Park, and the exhibits are very well done and if you're feeling rushed, you won't be able to read all the displays. If you are traveling with school-age... More
