    We made reservations well in advance and did the guided tour of the inside of Independence Hall. While my wife and I enjoyed the tour, keep in mind there are two rooms to see and it takes about 20 minutes. If you are not able to get reservations, you can still enjoy the Independence Hall area and Liberty Bell. At least for my wife and I, the guided tour of the inside was not the highlight of our visit but do the guided tour if you can.

    This review is for Kismet Bialys in the Reading Terminal Market. My wife and I wanted to try something new so we ordered for breakfast the classic bialy with carmelized onion and poppy seeds. We were quite pleasantly surprised how tasty it was !! It was warmed up for us and had a very pleasant and almost sweet taste. We highly recommend giving this a try !!

    I hadn't been here in a long time and was really amazed at how much this Museum offers! To see walls and rotundras lined with European impressionist and Brancusi sculptures, what a treat! Don't miss this Museum. And you can take a nice picturesque walk along the Schuylkill River.

    We arrived shortly after it opened and were able to take pictures of the liberty bell without other people in the photos. If possible, we would recommend arriving as early as possible. It really does make the visit more enjoyable and the resulting photos much, much better.

    The National Park Rangers at Independence Hall were wonderful in every way! We went on May 10, 2024, and due to the rain were able to get in to Independence Hall easily. We are so grateful for the kindness of all of the Rangers we met there. They really know a tremendous amount of history, and we had a great time visiting with a fourth grade class (Children are our hope for the future) and we learned a lot, as well!

    A quick photo stop for us to see the statue and the steps. Walked up the top of the steps for an amazing city view! Definately worth the stop if in the area.

    As far as museums of the American Revolution, the one in Yorktown was by far a much better museum. You could spend all day there going through all the displays. But this one was nice because it had the real tent that Washington used during the war.

    The movie and information about how they got the tent was interesting. They won't let you take photos.

    This was a great place to get any information you needed about Philadelphia and it had some great maps. The bathrooms were nice and the gift shop was good.

    Took my 14 year old daughter. We had fun but I'd say this museum is best for kids up to 13 years old. The hourly tesla coil and machine/engineering interactive exhibit were hightlights.

    This was a perfect experience for us. So many details to look at in this beautiful, creative space! For $15 it was very much worth the experience-although entry is timed you can stay as ling as you want. Scavenger hunt list is available for more fun..

    A must-do if in Philadelphia! I absolutely loved their exhibit on women's suffrage. Probably my favorite room was the mockup of the Constitutional Convention. Don't miss your opportunity to get a picture with the Father of the Constitution himself!

    Loved this museum. Well layed out and very informative. A great trip through American Jewish history. It touch on so many aspects of Jews in America. Even our 10 year old enjoyed it as there were several interactive pieces and videos to keep her engaged. We especially loved the part about Jewish summer camps and the videos of museum attendees answering questions. The docent was out the day we were there, I'm and I'm sure a tour would have been great, but we enjoyed it without one. An absolutely incredible museum store too--gorgeous Judaica that did not look like a synagogue gift shop

    There was a truck parked in the street between the houses every times we drove by here. They were working on a house so we took some photos on the other side of the truck. The houses are beautiful.

    Lovely building, the highlight though is the tower with the statue of Penn atop. Tours are available at selected times and days so check online and book.
