Philadelphia - Independence National Historical Park

143 South Third Street

The old cracked Bell still proclaims Liberty and Independence Hall echoes the words, "We the People." Explore Franklin's Philadelphia and learn about the past and America's continuing struggle to fulfill the Founders' Declaration that "all men are created equal."

Visit the Liberty Bell
No tickets are required to visit the Liberty Bell Center; however all visitors will be required to process through security screening.

Independence Hall
Tours of Independence Hall are organized by means of timed tickets. You can get free tickets at the Independence Visitor Center on the day of your visit, or reserve them in advance for a fee of $1.50 per ticket.

Beyond the Bell and the Hall
If time permits, don't limit your visit to Independence National Historical Park to just the Liberty Bell Center and Independence Hall. There are plenty of other sites to see. Spanning over 55 acres on 20 city blocks within the historic district of the City of Philadelphia, the park preserves and interprets many of our country's most important resources associated with the establishment of the United States of America. These sites include the First and Second Banks of the United States, Congress Hall and Old City Hall. Additionally, the park tells the story of Philadelphia's most famous citizen, Benjamin Franklin, in Franklin Court, where Franklin's home once stood.

Park that includes the Constitution Center the Liberty Bell in the original Independence Hall. Independence Hall requires time tickets so you have to get there early in order to get those or you can get a few of them online or is there for a small fee. Most of them are given out at the start of the day though, so get there early. Liberty Bell is free just have to go through security and wait a little while Independence Center has a fee, but has little bit of History a lot of school tours. Well I have a little bit of a great that you can't reserve more tickets online, this is a good place for people to learn a bit about American history and get a picture with the Bell. There's also parking lot under the park we have three levels so you should be able to find parking at most days. And it's relatively reasonable for price as it goes for the area downtown.

We waited in line early to get tickets for the Independence Hall tour because they booked out online early. We got to see the birthplace of America and where the Declaration of Independence was signed. Our tour guide gave us a great history lesson which was short but very interesting. As for the liberty bell we went 2 different days but the line was out the building down the street So we didn't get to see it up close. We did get a decent view of it from a side window that has an automated system that explains the history.

The Liberty Bell was easier to see than getting into Independence Hall. We lucked out. A large tour canceled at the last minute and we were able to get in. It was totally worth it. Our tour guide was the best. She even shares her own copies with her co-workers of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Very cool experience.

Really great historic stop. All of the staff, guards, and national parks rangers are excellent. The security is rather through but managed well. I definitely suggest coming in the off season. There are still lines to cue though, but not too bad. During peak season you should either pay for timed tickets or be ready to wait a really long time. Still totally worth it, and surrounded by lots more to see.
