“Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” This is the inscription on this iconic symbol of Independence, cast 1752. It’s believed to be one of the bells rung during the reading of the Declaration of Independence all those centuries ago. The public’s fascination and love for the bell only increased over time – it was used as symbol of freedom for the Cold War, and has been printed on coins and stamps. When you visit, you’ll learn about how the bell came to be, it’s use by abolitionists and advocates for women’s suffrage and pretty much everything else that’s relevant. Make sure you stick around to find out why that giant crack running up its side is so famous!

Liberty Bell Reviews & Ratings
So glad such a special American symbol has been preserved and placed to honor liberty. It reminded me that we have not yet reached true liberty for all but are working towards that goal. It was a wonderful display of history surrounding the bell itself and American heritage.
The new home for the Liberty Bell is pretty cool for visitors of all ages. Went today with my in-laws and young kids and everyone had a blast. There are metal detectors so if you go during peak times be ready to patiently wait. The gallery is filled with awesome exhibits that utilize photos, collectibles and videos. All of that leads up to the reason you are there and that is the one and only Liberty Bell which is an amazing piece of Americana that fills you with joy when you see it. The exhibit is indoors so you are shielded from the elements. I definitely recommend you visit at least once.
A wonderful exhibit. It was difficult to get photos with the bell without others in it but Finally! Other exhibits on the way to the bell as you wind your way through were informative. Great experience shared with my niece on a bit of our country's history.
A great way to view this historic landmark! There is historical information leading up to the bell. The location is beautiful, with gardens and more historic info outside the building. Going to the bell and Independence Hall are free, as they should be (in my opinion). The tours and info are FANTASTIC, the park folks and security friendly and knowledgeable!
I thought the monument was open-air but it's not, it is protected inside a building so pay attention to the opening hours! You must pass security and metal detector before entering, so make sure you are appropriate in general for it. It's a quick ride but it tells a lot about the history of liberty bell and you must have to add it to your travel itinerary when traveling to Philadelphia!
