The former site of Washington's slave quarters sits near the entrance of Liberty Bell Center. Upon entering the center, you'll find a series of exhibits before reaching the Liberty Bell. The bell is displayed out of reach (but in plain sight) and still hangs on what is thought to be the original yolk made of American elm. The bell's recognizable crack is clearly visible--observers have referred to it as a metaphor for the fragility of democracy. Be aware that all visitors are required to go through a security screening at the entrance.

  • This is a great little museum, and it is so cool to see the Liberty Bell in person! Once you are inside, 20-30 minutes will be a generous amount of time to see everything. You enter through a number of carefully crafted exhibits exploring the Bell itself as well as its symbolic place in history, in particular its use in the civil rights and suffrage movements. Then you get to see the Bell! It is roped off but you are able to move all around it. Definitely worth stopping! This is free.
  • It was very easy to go during the week. No entrance fee. Wonderful presentations and displays inside to learn about the history of the times around the Liberty bell and the bell itself. It's a worldwide recognized symbol of Freedom. Dignitaries from other countries have made it a point of interest. Enjoy.
