Located in the heart of historic Philadelphia, the National Liberty Museum is dedicated to preserving America’s heritage of freedom by fostering good character, civic responsibility and respect for all people. Visitors to the Museum take an inspirational walk through freedom, interacting with incredible stories of heroes and artwork that encourage them to find their own place in the story of liberty. Our core themes for young people and adults include leadership and good character; diversity and inclusion; peaceful conflict resolution; and civic engagement.  Our primary art form is glass art, as it makes the point that freedom is as fragile as glass, and that the right to self-expression is directly associated with liberty.

I visited the National Liberty Museum earlier this month, and I found it to be a wonderful experience. For the art lover, there are some beautiful art glass exhibits, and I found the museum's theme of character-based education through the lens of liberty to be truly moving. Some of the exhibits that use artwork to highlight the many challenges at-risk youth face in modern America are emotional, but hope is offered by highlighting historical examples of folks who have overcome challenges by focusing on leadership and good character, diversity and inclusion. Definitely worth a visit, and the museum can be easily experienced with an hour of spare time.

Nice little museum. If you follow them on fb, the admission fee would be 3 dollars. But that was 4 years ago.

This museum was a waste of time and money! 3 floors of absolutely nothing and its not related to American Liberty history in any way. The messages about love, friendship and diversity that tries promote was nice and the staff is friendly. But the museum itself has nothing to offer. Maybe for really small kids (?) and besides the "huge" attraction is a glass sculpture you can see from the gift shop. My advise don't go

Skip it! I was fortunate to tour it on MLK Day so the admission was free, that's the good news. The bad news is it was not much of a museum at all! The entire building is dedicated to art and social causes with political agendas. Tyrants , atrocities, holocaust....etc. and human struggle for liberty. None of it pertained to any of the local Philadelphia colonial history right down the street which is almost all free admission. There are no historical objects in the entire building except for a US flag signed by rescue searchers at Ground Zero 9-11. I would advise you skip this at all costs unless it's free admission. Had I paid for admission I would have been very upset.

Today, I had the opportunity to visit the National Liberty Museum with my students. I had never visited the museum before, and was blown away by all the exhibits. Our guides were wonderful and very knowledgeable. The students also couldn't stop raving about everything they learned and saw. I will definitely be going back again, this time without my students, to see and learn more. It was such a great experience for all.

Great Museum. School groups were there when I visited; students seemed totally engaged and interactive with very attentive tour guides. Wonderful glass sculptures. Outstanding anti-bullying messages and we all have the ability to be "Hero." Glad I found it!!

This is not a place to visit if you want mindless entertainment. That is what the one-star reviewers probably expected, and there are other places to find it. However, if you want to experience beautifully presented thought-provoking exhibits, if you want to be enriched, if you enjoy fabulous glass art, then this is a museum that you shouldn't miss whether you're young or old!

I have lived in Philadelphia area 17 years and never really heard about this museum (it is not the Liberty Bell museum), so we were very pleasantly surprised when we stumbled upon it yesterday. This museum promotes freedom and diversity. It is very open minded and forward thinking. It advocates against violence and discrimination. It has thought-provoking exhibits about religion, DNA, violence, etc. Also, there is some surprisingly beautiful glass art. I think children and teens can especially benefit from visiting this museum. Some highlights – memorial for the 9/11, jelly belly people – we all have the same ingredients even though we may appear different, advise how to avoid and resolve conflict, etc.
