Exhibitions at the NLM

In addition to our Signature Galleries, the National Liberty Museum regularly hosts temporary exhibitions that reflect our mission to inspire visitors to think about liberty as an ongoing human quest we all share.

One of the Museum’s galleries, the GlassAccess Gallery on our lower level, specifically features glass art exhibitions by both local and international contemporary glass artists. These exhibitions present a variety of liberty-related themes, while showcasing different techniques for the medium of glass.

Other spaces within the Museum, welcome exhibitions of varying themes, which continually enhance our visitors’ experience at the NLM. Our current temporary exhibition is Forbidden Art, a collection of 20 powerful images of fragile and rare examples of art made illegally by Jewish and Polish prisoners in the German Nazi Auschwitz Concentration and Extermination Camp. Forbidden Art is on display in our Live Like a Hero Gallery through Monday, April 12, 2020.


We Can Be Heroes Exhibition

We Can Be Heroes is a multi-media art exhibition presented in conjunction with “Philly Loves Bowie Week" (PLBW) (Jan. 3-12). It is on display through Monday, February 3.
