Even though it’s free, a ticket is required to enter the historic Independence Hall, which you can get at the Independence Visitor Center (if you pre-book your ticket, there is a small fee per ticket). Once you get your ticket, you will be able to take a guided tour throughout the building, seeing the room where in the summer of 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed. This is also the location where George Washington presided over the Constitutional Convention in 1787, which resulted in the United States Constitution. There are still numerous artefacts from those two historic meetings including an original draft of the Constitution, the original inkstand used to sign the Declaration of Independence and George Washington’s Rising Sun Armchair. 
HELPFUL HINT: If you plan on getting tickets the day of your visit, go to the Visitor Center early since they’re a limited number of tickets for each day. Yet, if you are visiting in January, February, the Fourth of July and Thanksgiving, tickets are not required.
