Lila Liberty’s Hero Quest

Meet Lila Liberty, a young hero on a quest to spread acceptance and kindness. To complete her mission she needs to collect all six of her Super Hero Gadgets, like Respectacles to see different points of view, and the Cape of Courage for a boost of confidence. Lila has friends all over the Museum who will unlock her Gadgets, but she needs YOUR help to find them!


Join Lila in this adventure through the National Liberty Museum galleries to discover your own power to Live Like A Hero, while learning the stories of young heroes who are making a big impact. Once the quest is complete, you’ll receive a special reward!

This self-guided experience encourages your child to take the lead in understanding how qualities like empathy, integrity, responsibility, and courage define what it means to be a Hero. In this engaging journey, young visitors will identify with the stories of real-life young heroes to discover their own power to make a difference at home, in school, or in the community.

Lila Liberty’s Hero Quest is available on Saturday and Sunday, and is included in the cost of admission. This activity is designed for children between the ages of 6-11, but all are welcome to participate.
