It wasn’t enough that this place hold’s such a dear place in the country’s heart – but it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Centre too – as it should be, seeing that the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were both adopted here. National Park Rangers will lead you through the red brick Georgian Style building starting at the courtroom; the Assembly Room with George Washington’s Rising Sun Chair; and the West Wing, where the inkstand that was used to sign the Declaration still remains. Visitors tend to remark that the experience would not be nearly as impressive and immersive without the awesome guidance of the ranger’s who clearly love what they do and believe in why they do it! History simply comes alive, and if you let your imagination paly, you can almost see the benches upon benches of stern faced men drafting two of the most important documents in history.

Is there a service that buys tickets for people for the tour at Independence Hall? My 95 year old mother-in-law is not going to be able to stand in line to buy a ticket and the online tickets are sold out.Answer Report Abuse
