Walk up tickets
Walk-up tickets for organized tours and school groups are distributed daily beginning at 8:30 a.m. from the Independence Visitor Center at 6th and Market Streets (March through December). Tickets are limited in quantity, and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. On busy days, all tickets may be distributed by 11am.
Reserved tickets (March through December) are a good option for tour leaders who want to be certain that they can obtain tickets for the entire group at a certain time. Call the reservation number toll free at 1-877-444-6777 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. (Eastern Time) or reserve your tickets through the reservation website.
