Reviews for Liberty Bell Center

The most famous bell in the country is visible, crack and all, 24 hours a day. – Facts
The original bell was ordered from an English foundry in 1751 to commemorate the 50-year anniversary of William Penn's 1701 Charter, which spoke of the rights and freedoms of all people. Its most fateful ringing, in the steeple of the State House (now Independence Hall), was on July 8, 1776, when it summoned citizens to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence.

The Appeal
That famous crack, widely attributed to flaws in its casting and caused by a stroke of the clapper, grew bigger every time it was rung. The Liberty Bell was moved to Independence Hall in 1846 and to a glass pavilion in 1976. In October of 2003 the Bell moved to the new Center. Guests now not only get to see the Bell from inside and outside the building but have the opportunity to view exhibits and films charting the Bell's history.

The cradle of liberty starts here! – If you are going to visit Philadelphia, you must visit the Liberty Bell. It is across the street from Independence Hall, which is your other must-see. And both attractions are free!

let freedom ring!! – The Liberty Bell is a symbol of Philly and a symbol of American Freedom! it's free to visit so make sure to check it out when you're in Philly. also they are builing a whole new Liberty Bell Pavillon to house the famous Bell. so it will even be better in the future.
