Cell Phone program
Independence National Historical Park is pleased to announce a new cell phone program. By dialing 267-519-4295 visitors are able to listen 24/7 to the stories our buildings tell. Park Rangers briefly explain the history behind the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Washington Square and the other park buildings. Designed to be user friendly and flexible, visitors may access the stops in any order or go in sequence for a tour of the park. Small signs are posted around the park with the numbers of the buildings from 10 to 31.
The cell phone program is provided by OnCell Systems of Pittsford, NY and calls to this local Philadelphia number (267-519-4295) are free except for air time on your cell phone. Visitor contributions to the park donation boxes are being used to fund this program.
