Lights of Liberty
Lights of Liberty is a spectacular sound and light show. Experience the events leading up to the American Revolution while walking through Independence National Historic Park after dark. A personal headset with surround sound tells the story of the American Revolution, while beautiful hand-painted, 5-story-high images are projected onto the sides of historical buildings. In less than a mile and about one hour visitors experience five acts in five locations. Visit the place and be a part of the revolution!
A wonderful technical way to learn about our fore fathers and their struggle for our nation. The walk from site to site gives you a realistic view of the time of Franklin. Recommend this activity for everyone.
Loved it! It helped bring history alive for my students. Sound quality was excellent. The company does a grat job in projecting images onto the historic buildings. Many of my students said that this was definitely one of the main highlights of the trip! This is well worth booking.
very dissapointed - this group called and cancelled their performance on thursday - because they only had twenty reservations for the night; they didn't want to do the show unless they had at least forty. it's all about the money.
This is one of the best things to do in Philly. There are discounts everywhere and with the prices of the area museums going thru the roof, and having to pay extra for this show and extra for that part of the museum. It is nice that this is one stop shopping. It really gets you into the feel of the time and places. Would go again in a minute!!!!!!!!
The Lights of Liberty Experience is wonderful. You'll take a walking tour of the places where Ben Franklin lived and walked. There are headphones for children so that they get the experience from a child's perspective. The special effects are great.
I had to twist my husband's arm to go on the "Lights of Liberty" tour.He was like, "are you crazy? How cheesy will THAT be?" We went to America's birthplace for America's birthday in July of 04. He finally agreed, and we, along with 25 or so others, set off at dusk under the leadership of a lady who took her bell-ringing duties VERY seriously.But it turned out to be fun, as we walked from venue to venue to see the slide shows on the walls of historic areas, our group got a little rowdy. I guess we were just all caught up in the 4th of July atmosphere. Our leader was ringing her bell furiously to get our collective attention. And on the last slide pic, the celebration of the Founding Father's new country coincided with a very loud 2004 Philly celebration. Awesome! FYI, I have never met such friendly & helpful people anywhere to top those in Philly, everyone was fabulous. 'Cept the bell-ringer lady!
this is where i tell the guested that they must see it's fun for children and audlts when you visted philly a must see and while you see a nice show you should check out the liberty bell so most people come back and tell me they had a great time
