Heroes Among Us, Now Open, Lower Level Gallery
In this inspirational exhibition, the Museum celebrates NLM award winners who have demonstrated extraordinary courage and made a difference in the lives of others.
Since the NLM’s founding, core to our work is hosting a series of impactful annual awards programs honoring the everyday heroes among us. To date, we have recognized hundreds of teachers, students, police officers, firefighters & first-responders, and healthcare professionals from around the world for their exemplary service.
Tickets may be purchased online up to 2 weeks in advance of your visit (strongly encouraged), as well as in-person at the Museum. Get your advanced timed tickets here.
Our newest exhibition, Strength & Fragility: The Story of the NLM, 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. Strength & Fragility includes engaging archival material, stunning glass artwork, and immersive soundscapes. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a magnificent 9-foot-high glass canopy by Ulla Darni, entitled “The Peace Portal.” It features a custom sound bath experience, Seeds of Love, written and produced by Philadelphia-based sound artist Luna Maye, in collaboration with composer Alfiya Glow.
