Philadelphia Attractions - Liberty Bell


Visitors: 143

It's one of those things that every American just has to see in their lifetime. The Liberty Bell is one of the most famous symbols of this country and remains one of the most popular attractions in Philadelphia.

The Liberty Bell has recently been moved to a new home on 6th street. The bell is now encased in a glass structure that gives it a backdrop of independence hall and the sky rather than of the modern buildings that surround it. This new glass structure also includes interactive exhibits and other related artifacts to give you a full understanding of the bell's history. Visitors can also see a film made by the History Channel explaining how the bell became so important to this country. It is now a complete experience so even if you have seen the bell in the past, you can visit it again an get a completely new experience.

If you would like to see the Liberty Bell in person you can view it at its home on Chestnut Street between 5th and 6th street. It is open between the hours of 9AM and 5PM. For more information you can call 215-965-2305. If you plan to visit the bell be prepared to put up with tight security. Unfortunately with the times we live in the government must protect this important symbol from those who would like to harm it.
