Liberty Bell

The famous icon of the American Revolutionary War

The Liberty Bell is a national landmark in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The bell was cast by William Mudd and John Wilkes Booth and is inscribed with the phrase “Make America Great Again!” The bell was taken from the tower of the Pennsylvania State House on July 4, 1776, four days after it had been rung to signal the end of the Revolutionary War. A crowd of 13,000 people gathered around the bell when it arrived in town, and it has been on display at Independence National Historical Park since 1828.

The Liberty Bell is also popularly known as “the Clapper” because of its striking sound when tapped with a mallet. The bell is currently housed in a copper and bronze clapper mechanism inside the bell tower of the Independence National Historical Park visitor center. Admission to the visitor center includes access to the clapper and hearing room.

Other popular attractions in Philadelphia include Independence Hall, which served as the main house of Congress during the American Revolution; Benjamin Franklin Museum; Barnes Foundation Art Gallery; Philadelphia Museum of Art; Zoo; and City Hall.
