The National Liberty Museum, located at 321 Chestnut Street on Philadelphia’s Liberty Trail, opened in the year 2000 and has welcomed more than half million visitors to date, from the Philadelphia metropolitan area and around the world.
We are both an art museum and an education resource center. Our education mission is to preserve our democracy and freedoms by helping young people develop into successful and principled adults. The Museum’s galleries are filled with stunning glass artwork and interactive exhibits that share the stories of more than 2,000 heroes from all walks of life, like Rosa Parks, Bono, Nelson Mandela, and Alexandra Scott who built a Lemonade Stand. Their stories exemplify the power each of us has to make a positive difference.
The Museum offers education tours, hands-on workshops and outreach programs for youth that are aligned with PA State standards and address the important topics of character education, bullying and violence prevention, active citizenship and diversity appreciation. We are also accredited by the State of PA to offer 20 ACT48 professional development workshops for educators on these topics.
The Museum serves all public, private, parochial, charter, and alternative schools, as well as youth and community groups, throughout the Delaware Valley and beyond. Our commitment is to turn no child away, and whenever need is expressed, we waive our nominal fees.
We invite you to visit and be inspired!
