The Independence Visitor Centre in Philadelphia is staying open to the public while undergoing major renovations.

The project is expected to take two years and cost around $15 million.

Fencing is up and construction equipment abounds, reports CBS Philly.

The Independence Visitor Centre is one of the city’s most popular attractions. According to James Cuorato, the Visitor Centre’s CEO, renovations will centre on amenities and technology to enhance the guest experience.independence visitor center philadelphia logo

The building is being extended by a few metres at its southern end. The gift shop is being expanded and rest rooms will be relocated. This will allow the creation of a terrace which will wrap around the building to join the one already in place.

Digital upgrades are set to include new touch-screens allowing visitors to download information to their smart phones and electronic devices.
