Liberty in Action

National Liberty Museum

Liberty comes to life at the National Liberty Museum, located in the heart of Philadelphia’s Old City, where past ideals empower the achievements of today, tomorrow, and beyond.

Over four floors of permanent galleries and changing exhibitions, we explore the meaning of liberty today through contemporary art and the stories of real people from around the world who have done extraordinary things in the name of freedom.

“I raise up my voice—not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard. We cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” ―Malala Yousafzai
Featured Exhibition


FREE with General Admission ticket or NLM Membership

American artist-activist Shannon Downey is a trailblazer in the field of craftivism, elevating traditional crafting activities like cross-stitching into expressions of activism. Her motto? Stitching fury into action.

Craftivism merges three of Downey’s cutting-edge installations: It’s Nice to Meet Me, Exodus, and Badass Herstory, a global community project that inspires women and gender non-binary folks to share their stories through fiber art. Delve into this amalgamation of Downey’s passions and ideals, embroidered to explore and strengthen an understanding of self—and discover what it means to take positive action for yourself and others.
