“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!

We liked all the exhibits before we actually got to the bell. Line was long but it moved fairly quickly. I appreciated the Parks gentleman who was telling us lots of history about the bell. It was a mini-educational lecture and it was good.
How can something so treasured by our country not get 5 stars? The National Park Service does an amazing job at this venue. The security was efficient and moved quickly making the process smooth. The grounds are extremely clean and well maintained which is another plus. We are super glad we took the time to stop the Linuerty Bell.
Nice small exhibition/exposition about THE symbol of freedom. You find much information on several wall charts and presentation boards. And at the end of the building you will see the famous Liberty Bell. It may happen that you have to join the queue/line at the entrance, but waiting time is quite short (approximately 10 minutes).
Great museum to the Liberty Bell and it's symbolism to the civil rights movements. Displays of its importance during the civil war and racial equality to women's rights and LGBT rights. Even though the line looked long from the outside, it only took less than 30 minutes to get in. Worth going to if you're visiting Philly.
This is a nice location if you wanna grab a cup of coffee in a brief snack. Always have nice videos of historic parts of Philadelphia and interesting information. It also is not bad location for childen to visit.
