Admission to Independence Hall is by tour only. From March through December, timed entry tickets with a specific date and time are required. These tickets eliminate the long wait for Independence Hall tours and give you more time to see the other historic sites in the area. Tickets are not required in January and February, after 5 p.m. during summer hours, on July 4th, or on Thanksgiving Day. Independence National Historical Park is closed on Christmas Day.


How to Obtain Independence Hall Tickets

There are two ways to obtain tickets: walk up tickets on the day of your visit (free), or reserved tickets ($1.00 per ticket). It's best to plan ahead - whether you are picking up walk up tickets or making advance reservations. The procedures for individuals/families are different than those for groups.
