Although the children won’t be able to ring this iconic symbol of our country’s freedom, an interactive exhibit of cracked bells will let them hear how a bell sounds before and after repairs. Cast in London for the Pennsylvania State House, the bell’s famous fissure emerged early in its life. Despite several repairs, the crack was destined to be. Commentary explaining the bell’s history, along with the presence of enthusiastic and patient docents, makes this an enjoyable historic field trip.
