Welcome! The National Park Service strives to make the parks as universally accessible as possible. Here at Independence, park buildings, programs, films and exhibits are accessible through a variety of means, including ramps, open captioning and assistive listening devices. Service animals are permitted in all park buildings.
Have you heard about the The America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Access Pass -- or simply, the "Access Pass" -- which provides a wide range of discounts on activities and services when you visit federal lands? The Access Pass cannot currently be obtained at Independence National Historical Park, but it is available online and at some other national park sites.

Independence National Historical Park is located in an urban area served by Interstates 95 and 676. The park is also easily reached by public transportation, including SEPTA and PATCO mass transit routes. Despite being situated within a large city, the park itself is fairly compact. Most park sites stretch from 2nd Street and 7th Street, and Walnut Street to Arch Street in the historic district. We recommend that you start your visit at the Independence Visitor Center at 6th and Market Streets.
The list below provides specific accessibility information about individual park sites. You will also find important information about hours, locations, and fees in the linked "Plan Your Visit" pages. And don't forget to use the built-in accessibility features on your phone to make the most of our FREE mobile app--it has maps, suggestions for public transportation and more! Search for "NPS Independence" in the App Store or on Google Play.
