Visitors should make their first stop at the visitor center, where they can pick up free timed tickets to view Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. Since the terrorist attack on September 11th, the security around the park is ever-present, but does not detract from the experience. To view the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, visitors are now required to go through security, including a metal detector and emptying/x-raying of pockets, bags, etc.
The rangers are knowledgeable and excited about the park and its history. They are open for questions and can answer almost any one posed.
If you are a Benjamin Franklin fan, do not miss Franklin Court, the Underground Museum, the B.Free Post Office & Museum, or the Franklin Printing press. Each venue offers a personal glimpse into his life and allows visitors a view of his genius, creativity, and eccentricity.
There are no fees involved in admission to the national park.
