National Liberty Museum, Philadelphia

4.3
Just when you thought you knew everything about Philadelphia, it turns out The City of Brotherly Love has a treasure you may not have uncovered. The National Liberty Museum is known as one of Philly’s hidden gems. The Museum, located in Old City, examines liberty in a whole new way through world-class collections of glass art and innovative exhibits that showcase artists, visionaries and activists who exercise their freedom of expression every day. You’ll find stories of hundreds of heroes, past and present, who have protected and expanded our liberties, including heroes from our own backyard. Most of all, our exhibits will help you reflect on your own experience of freedom and awaken your desire to “LIVE LIKE A HERO.”

In addition to welcoming general visitors, we offer guided tours and workshops for school groups, unique professional development workshops for educators, and an array of exciting evening events for artists, collectors and the everyday Philadelphian. You can even nominate exceptional teachers, students, police offers and firefighters for one of our Hero Awards.
Put National Liberty Museum into our Philadelphia sightseeing website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Awesome place to bring our kind and youngsters to get them aware. I had great experience here because last time when i visited here i found lot of great stuff. I would like to recommend this place to all .
  • Since this city is full of history & museums... this museum is considered a smaller one. Admission is way cheaper as well. If you have limited time visiting the city, then use your time wisely since there are so many museums in this area.
