Philadelphia’s Freedom Exhibition Call to Artists

When the National Liberty Museum opened its doors twenty years ago just a block away from Independence Hall, it took on the mission to reinforce the basic principles for safeguarding liberty, including heroism, empathy, and the appreciation of diversity. For our upcoming exhibition, Philadelphia's Freedom, the National Liberty Museum invites artists from the City of Brotherly & Sisterly Love to submit artwork based on your own unique interpretation of freedom.

Philadelphia's Freedom will debut in the NLM's Live Like a Hero Gallery in the Summer/Fall of 2020. The deadline to apply is May 17.

Giveback Workshops

On the first Saturday of each month from 10:30-noon, the NLM partners with a selected mission-driven nonprofit to give parents and children the opportunity to work together to complete a “make-and-donate” activity for an important cause. This event is included with general admission, but registration is encouraged.

Read & Romp

Join us with your little learner, ages 2-6, for Read & Romp, an exciting hour of imaginative storytelling, interactive games, and creative crafts in the Museum’s galleries.

Check our events calendar for Read & Romps scheduled for later this spring.
