Programs for Girl Scouts

The National Liberty Museum offers an array of exhibits and programs that will help your Girl Scouts become confident, courageous, and ethical young leaders. You can sign up below for one of the badge programs listed on this page, or we can work with you to create a Museum Learning Experience related to a badge of your choice.

National Liberty Museum program for girl scouts

Cost: $8 per Girl Scout, $5 per adult.*

Minimum participation: 10 Girl Scouts for each program.

*Fee includes a guided Museum tour and a series of activities that will help your Scouts to complete one or more badge requirements.

If you do not have the required 10-Scout minimum, check back periodically to learn when we will be hosting our next Girl Scout Day, when no minimum participation is required. 

See our programs for Girl Scouts below. Please note that badge distribution is the sole responsibility of the scout troop leader. If you have any questions about our programs for scouts, contact Catherine Ensslen at 215-925-2800, ext. 108 or email censslen@libertymuseum.org.

    • To identify a hero who acted courageously
    • To describe an everyday action that is courageous and/or strong

    Just how do governments work, anyway? Go behind the scenes to learn how local, state, national, and international governing bodies work—and then learn how you can make your voice heard!
