  4. Cancellations, Changes, & Late Arrival
    • Cancellations: Please notify us immediately if you need to cancel your group’s scheduled guided tour. If you cancel your tour, any payment you have made will be applied as credit to a future visit or credit in our Museum Store.
    • Changes: Please notify us immediately if you need to change your tour date, tour time or if your group changes in size by more than 5 people. We will make every effort to accommodate your changes. If your change results in an overpayment, we will apply the excess to a future visit or as credit in our Museum Store. If your change results in an underpayment, the additional amount will be due upon your arrival.

Due to limited space in our entry areas, tour groups arriving early may be asked to wait outside the Museum until their scheduled tour time. If your group arrives late, we may not be able to extend your tour past the previously scheduled departure time, although we will make an effort to do so if possible. If your group is unavoidably delayed, please notify us immediately with your estimated time of arrival so that we can best prepare to accommodate your group.

Philadelphia’s Freedom Exhibition Call to Artists

For our upcoming exhibition, Philadelphia's Freedom, the National Liberty Museum invites artists from the City of Brotherly & Sisterly Love to submit artwork based on your own interpretation of freedom.

Philadelphia's Freedom will debut in the NLM's Live Like a Hero Gallery in the Summer/Fall of 2020. The deadline to apply is July 17.
