Security Information

You will have to go through a security screening area to visit Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell Center.

To maximize your visit to the park and minimize your security screening time, we recommend that you only bring small bags and packages, if necessary.

We ask that large bags, luggage and lunches etc. be kept at your hotel or bus, if possible. The time it takes visitors to get through security depends on the number of individuals, family members, groups and organizations to be screened, number of items to be screened they may have.

This is strongly urged for large groups that wish to see Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell where security screening is necessary.

The fewer items you have to be checked, the faster you will pass through our security screening area and more time for you, your loved ones and/or your group to enjoy all that our park has to offer.
