Is The Philadelphia Pass Right For You?

Many Philadelphia Tourist Attractions Are Free

It is important to emphasize, before we go further, to note that one of the chief advantages of Philadelphia as a tourist destination, is that you can see some famous attractions at no cost at all, or at low prices.

For example, the two most significant attractions - Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell - are part of the National Park Service's Independence National Historic Park and are free of charge, as is the underground museum of Franklin Court - which will soon be closing for over two years, for renovations.

In fact, we have an entire page on this subject - Free Places to Visit in Philadelphia - which you can consult, for a full listing of the many free options for fun, entertainment, and education in the city.
