National Liberty Museum tour exhibits

What will my group see and do?

Jackie Robinson. Jim Henson. Malala Yousafzai. These are just a few of the heroes of liberty who will greet your group as they walk through the front doors of the National Liberty Museum.

Our Welcome to Liberty gallery also offers them an exact replica of the Liberty Bell that they can touch… an interactive iPad exhibit featuring a liberty quiz… and an immersive film production in our new Liberty Theater.

As your group is led through our other seven galleries and adjacent spaces, their inspirational walk through freedom continues as they interact with heroes from around the world. They’ll see Nelson Mandela’s jail cell; a tribute to the Heroes of 9/11; and our life-size Jellybean Children exhibit, just to name a few. They’ll also enjoy our extensive collection of contemporary glass art, which makes the point that freedom is fragile.

With its unique combination of entertainment, art, advocacy, and inspiration, the National Liberty Museum will enable your group to explore the meaning of liberty, diversity, and inclusion and discover their inner hero.

 

What are my tour options?

“Spark of Liberty” Guided Tour

During a 60- or 90-minute tour (your choice) our professional educators will lead you through our vast array of inspiration spaces, as they explain the history and significance of our art collection, as well as the philosophy that drives our unique presentation of hero stories from around the world. Your group will have the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue about what it means to be a citizen in a free society, what we can learn from the heroes and heroines around us, and how to activate our own freedoms for the benefit and liberty of all. Reservations are required for all adult & family group tours. Learn more and reserve your tour today.

After Hours Experience – By Special Request!

ADD a Buffet Dinner in Liberty Hall and you’ll be surrounded by reminders of the historical men and women who fought for our liberties throughout history. Pre-fixed dinners are available at $33 or $40 per person.

Or… ADD a Deli Dinner of Authentic Philadelphia food served in one our our galleries. This meal includes a sandwich of your choice from Old City’s Campo’s Deli, chips, a cookie, and soda or water. Price is $15 per person.
