There's lots to do here and most of it is free, although parking is a bit of an expense. This is an important place to visit to reacquaint with the tenets that our country was founded on as it seems many of our current government representatives have completely forgotten. The national park service has a great program for fourth graders that grants a year of free access to all national parks for them and their immediate family and you can register at the visitors center...also available on line.

Great! Very helpful staff. Here guided tours to historical areas of Philly are available and also you can get tickets for the hop on and off sightseeing bus. Staff is multilingual and I saw English and Spanish desks featured prominently, Im sure they support other languages too. I saw a guided tour of the Liberty bell being conducted for and in Chinese. Highly recommended. Please do visit.

This is where you'll go to get your tickets for tours you're taking later in the day. There's a coffee shop, tour vendors, clean bathrooms, warmth (very important in winter), and a rotating exhibit. I'd suggest you meet up here and use the restrooms before queuing up on line to see the Liberty Bell.

Nice clean restrooms. There are some gift shops here. You can also get tickets and information about other Philadelphia attractions. There are many photo ops here on the grounds. Parking can be tough. There is an underground garage across the street.
