Located on the Lower Level of the National Liberty Museum, the GlassAccess Gallery at NLM compliments the Museum’s permanent glass collection with revolving exhibits focusing on current themes. GlassAccess hosts several exhibitions throughout the year featuring both local and international contemporary glass.
This space was created to mirror the Museum’s mission and inspire visitors to think about liberty as an ongoing human quest that we all share. These cutting-edge exhibits enhance one’s understanding of the contemporary glass art movement and the freedom of expression through the medium of glass.

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.
