“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!

“take a tour as without knowing history, it’s just a building...!!” - its walking distance from liberty bell. Liberty bell-Independence hall- National constitution centre- US MINT -Franklin court, all are nearby. it is the place where both the United States Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were debated and adopted. It is now the centrepiece of the Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia. It is listed as a World Heritage Site. We took a guided tour and it has its own importance. they wear history attire and make you feel like you are witnessing the history. It’s fun when you indulge in their hurrah, bizarre. there is special benches and designated guy are there to tell you stories.
Really cool site! I would suggest getting there early right when it opens so you can beat the large crowds and tour groups. There is a great amount of interesting information that leads up to the bell site. The bell itself was fantastic to see in person!
Awesome site. Well funded. Great tidbits of information throughout the exhibit. Security was present. The centennial bell still rings across the street. There is a guard/ranger with the bell to protect it and answer questions. Very friendly, very helpful.
the line is long but goes by quickly. they made a nice facility to maintain it and there is a lot of cool things to read and learn from. There is also a park serviceman that has interesting facts to tell.
I found it just a bell. For international car drivers: There is no parking around the park, and parking signs are unfriendly. Do not go there by a car. You may be unintentionally ticketed because of their poor parking service.
