We extend our sincere thanks to everyone who joined us for our annual Glass Auction on Saturday, October 6 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown.  Our generous sponsors, donors, artists, and guests helped make this event one of our most successful Glass Auctions ever!  100% of the proceeds will support the Museum’s education and outreach programs for kids. This will enable the Museum to serve schools and communities throughout our region with character and civics education programs that teach young people leadership, empathy, personal responsibility and respect for diversity.

Please enjoy these photos of this wonderful evening.

GiveBack Workshops

GiveBack Workshops at NLM are a unique way of volunteering and the perfect spark to activate your family’s sense of empathy, respect, and responsibility, the character traits that make someone a true hero of liberty. A different GiveBack Workshop is held once each month on a Saturday morning. You and your children will work together to complete a “make-and-donate” activity specifically designed by the partner organization for that month.

Check our events calendar for all the upcoming GiveBack Workshops –and the organizations with whom we are partnering– beginning on January 12, 2019.
