Our current exhibitions include Strength & Fragility: The Story of the NLM located on our 4th floor in Liberty Hall and Heroes Among Us on the lower level. Strength & Fragility highlights the life of the Museum’s founder Irvin J. Borowsky, and how his belief in universal equality and liberty, as well as his passion for contemporary glass art, led to the creation of the National Liberty Museum. Heroes Among Us celebrates NLM award winners who have demonstrated extraordinary courage and made a difference in the lives of others.
The Museum is also currently presenting an exhibition entitled Philly’s Freedom, which is now in its final weeks in our second floor gallery. Closing on April 25, Philly’s Freedom features more than 75 works of art that inspires us to see freedom and liberty in a totally new way.
