The National Liberty Museum is committed to giving students, teachers and families access to our inspirational heroes exhibits, reflective artwork, and engaging programs that bring people together and provoke thought and dialogue about liberty.

The young people we serve with our character and civic education programs learn critical 21st century skills – leadership, empathy, social skills, and critical thinking – that underpin academic success, responsible citizenship, and, ultimately, the health of liberty.

Your charitable contribution helps ensure that our interactive museum, public programs, and educational outreach are available to those in need.
