In 1751, William Penn asked that the new bell being cast for the Pennsylvania Statehouse be engraved with the words, Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the inhabitants thereof. The bell rang to call citizens to the first reading of the Declaration of Independence and was later dubbed The Liberty Bell by abolitionists, who adopted the bell as a symbol of their fight for freedom for all Americans. Talks on the history of the bell are presented continually during open hours, which vary season to season.

It was nice to see such a great monumental piece of work.
A lot of security just to see a bell. Lots of intresting info on the walls about old US.
The building that houses the bell had intresting architecture, but it was a little hard to find from our parking garage.
It was very easy to see one of the great historical monuments of the country. It was free and while we were there it was not crowded (on a saturday?) and while it was a little difficult to get a good picture with others surrounding it, it was a very cool trip.
It was the best thing I saw all day. To see a piece of history, something that would have rung for freedom and independence. That once was touched and carefor by our founding fathers George Washington, Ben Franklin, etc. and now here it is in front of little ole me. Wow. It was very much worth the line, the inspection, and reading about the "want to be" important people in the lobby before you rich the bell itself. They could forgo some of that stuff. This is about the bell and nothing but the bell. And what a backdrop for you picture with the bell but Constitution Hall. Very good planning on someone part.
It was such a bust, I thought I was going to see a giant monstrosity of a bell, but when I arrived it was smaller than the one in the Polar Express. It could have easily fallen out of Abraham Lincoln's pocket and broke. Plus when I arrived it wasn't even there. I was told it was in Lawrence, KS.
