Walk up tickets
There is no charge for walk up tickets. Tickets are distributed each morning from the Independence Visitor Center at 6th and Market Streets starting at 8:30am. They are limited in quantity and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. On busy days, all the tickets may be distributed by 11am.
Reserved tickets are a good option for those visitors who do not plan to arrive in the park early, or those who prefer a particular tour time. Call toll free at 1-877-444-6777 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. (Eastern Time) or reserve your tickets online through the reservation website.
