The National Liberty Museum is now open Friday-Sunday, 10am-5pm
In alignment with updates from the CDC and the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, starting June 17, the National Liberty Museum is easing visitor restrictions. This includes lifting the mask requirement for fully vaccinated visitors and increasing visitor capacity. Unvaccinated visitors (age 2+) are required to wear a mask when inside the NLM. In an effort to continue our commitment to safety for all visitors, our frontline staff will still be required to wear masks.
Please Note: We are expanding our hours to include being open on Thursdays, beginning June 24.Tickets

Strength & Fragility: The Story of the NLM highlights the life of the Museum’s founder Irvin J. Borowsky, and how his belief in universal equality and liberty, as well as his passion for contemporary glass art, led to the creation of the National Liberty Museum. Strength & Fragility includes engaging archival material, stunning glass artwork, and immersive soundscapes. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a magnificent 9-foot-high glass canopy by Ulla Darni, entitled “The Peace Portal.” It features a custom sound bath experience, Seeds of Love, written and produced by Philadelphia-based sound artist Luna Maye, in collaboration with composer Alfiya Glow.

Since the NLM’s founding, a major component of our work has been our series of annual awards programs honoring the everyday heroes who live among us. This exhibition celebrates teachers, students, police officers, firefighters & first-responders, and healthcare professionals who have demonstrated extraordinary courage and made a difference in the lives of others.
