Liberty Bell Center
Source

Advocating for independence, this bell is one of the most iconic and recognisable symbols in American culture. The inscription "Proclaim Liberty throughout All the Land unto All the Inhabitants thereof", taken from the Bible decorates the bell, giving it a straightforward and timeless message. The bell got its name because it gathered the population of Philadelphia to the Independence Hall to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence on the 8th of July, 1776. Nobody that is alive today has ever heard the sound of this bell. This is because the bell cracked (probably from overuse) in 1840's and the reparation (which was actually widening the crack on purpose) did not help. Nevertheless, the bell is now displayed in the Liberty Bell Center. If you are interested in history and the route that the U.S. took to become independent, you should definitely visit this place. Liberty Bell Center is accessible for disabled people. The articles in the building are adjusted to people with vision loss, and the films have open captions for those with hearing loss. You have to go through a metal detector to get inside.
