  • Part of the American history. Worth passing by for that reason. You can take a picture from outside the gate and to the next independence attraction. 
  • I found it worth the whole cemetery. Great, I found that if you want to see only the tomb of the road from the grave see wall – - was replaced on the spot by lattice fence. We are went in for $1. The pennies are placed on the Tomb are $3,000 per year.

  • You will be asked for a donation , they even offer tours for a bit higher contribution. Whats sweet, you dont need to go into the courtyard, rather take photos from Arch St at no cost,

  • I don't know how exciting a cemetery is supposed to be. I was a little surprised to have to pay admission, but it is private property and receives a lot of foot traffic, so I feel the price was nominal considering the upkeep probably required. It was something that I'm glad I did. The staff were knowledgeable about the cemetery and were able to answer a few questions I had about the property.
  • Pretty cool to get to see Ben's tomb. Throw a penny on it for good luck-it all goes to preserving the tombs in the graveyard. For $2.00 you can go into the whole graveyard itself, which is pretty cool too if you like graves.
  • The two women at the entrance were extremely knowledgeable. Be sure to ask questions like how they could bury 10+ people in one tomb. Really interesting stuff.
  • Pretty cool just to be able to see the place where Ben Franklin is buried. There's not much here, so don't expect grandeur.
  • Very cool, located near the liberty bell.
