An absolutely beautiful place to visit with many interesting historical sites. Be prepared for some long lines but it is worth the wait.

I must see if you visit Philly or a history buff, remember that security is as tight as a airport, if you take the tour have your patience and money, its free to see outside and take pics

Visiting this area gives you a sense of what our forefathers did to help start our great country. It is a peaceful and scenic place that lets your mind wonder back to the 1700's.

A definite "must see" regarding the history of many famous historical figures and the begging history lesson of the creation of the united states. In one story, the carpenters building we purchased nice keep sakes. The walk could take you a couple of hours. Many...More

The tour was just unbelievable. Our tour guide Tom was a never ending source of knowledge from that era. He even spent a good 20 minutes with us after the tour to talk Revolution. It was the high light of our visit to Philly

Made me so proud to be an American and so sad to see where we are now. Going from intelligent thinking men who worked to create a democratic system of government to the sad self centered childish leadership we have today.

Don't be misled by a relatively low Nr.19 TA rating, it's probably due to people who come more often here and do other things. This place blooms with US history and it's the prime reason an overseas visitor comes to Philly. It's the place where...More

I would say 1.5-2 hours should be good. If you rush and try really hard you can finish it in 45 mins - 1 hour. If I were you I would skip Mutter Museum if I run short on time.
