Independence Hall -- Click to enlargeSince the fall of 2003, the National Park Service Liberty Bell Center has served as the Liberty Bell's home. Located on 6th Street, between Market and Chestnut Streets in Philadelphia, the center incorporates three elements: a shaded outdoor arcade, an interior exhibit hall, and a new glass-walled chamber for the Bell that permits visitors to see the icon and nearby Independence Hall in a single view.
