Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

This is the spot where your freedom was born—the very building in which our founding fathers drafted and signed the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution. Join a free guided tour led by a park ranger that takes you throughout the building, including into the Assembly Room where the aforementioned documents were John Hancock’d. You’ll find George Washington’s “rising sun” chair holding a prominent position in the room, which is set up exactly the way it was during the Constitutional Convention. To actually get in here, you’ll have to pick up a free ticket at the Independence Visitor Center starting at 8:30am. Get there as close to opening as you can. Tickets are limited and they’re all usually snatched up by the afternoon.
