The 'birthplace of American government,' a modest Quaker building, is where delegates from the 13 colonies met to approve the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. Entrance is at the corner of Chestnut and 5th Sts. Even without a ticket, you can pass through to see Congress Hall , where the congress met when Philly was the nation's capital.
