Best described as a hidden jewel among the treasures in the Historic District focused on Independence era history and architecture. We found this location by accident — wondered in to the main building of the three in this cluster of historic venues. The Carpenters Hall has a story to be told and the staff/volunteers on site fill the bill nicely. Some say they take up to three hours in this relatively small building — we spent about a half hour and felt like we got a good dose of the importance of this place in history.
It was a decent experience for my family. We decided to do a quick trip to visit some historical sites and it was very informative. I remember being bored with history growing up, but the guide we had made it incredibly interesting.
Another cool piece of Philadelphia history. Not a whole lot to see, but free to go inside and has a little gift shop as well. Some interesting plaques to read inside...worth checking out if in the area (which you probably are if you are seeing the Liberty Bell/Independence Hall).
