Located in Independence National Historical Park, the Independence Visitor Center is the official visitor center of Greater Philadelphia, and the exclusive location to pick up free, timed tickets to tour Independence Hall.

They are available to help you make the most out of your time, with options to purchase tickets to more than 100 area attractions and tours; book hotel or restaurant reservations; share upcoming event information; and assist with all of your trip-planning needs.

Stop in to browse and pick up regional maps and brochures; charge your cell phone for free; and connect with our free wireless internet access. The Visitor Center is also home to the Independence Gift Shop, the official gift shop of the Greater Philadelphia region; and Cafe Independence.
