General Information about Fees and Passes
Admission to most park sites is free. Timed entry tickets are required to enter Independence Hall from March through December, but there is no charge for those tickets if obtained at the Independence Visitor Center on the morning of your visit. The Benjamin Franklin Museum charges an interpretive fee and the National Constitution Center, a partner of the park, charges an admission fee.
Tickets are required for tours of Independence Hall, except in January and February. From March through December, visitors must obtain free timed entry tickets to see Independence Hall. Tickets can be obtained on the morning of your visit at the Independence Visitor Center, or reserved in advance online or by phone (fee applies).
