Schedule a Field Trip

Join a National Liberty Museum Educator as they bring liberty to life in engaging tours through the Museum’s permanent and changing exhibitions. Our field trip programs are designed and recommended for students in grades 4-12 and last approximately 1 hour. All field trip programs and materials are aligned with national and state education standards and reflect cross-curricular learning in English Language Arts, Literacy, Social Studies, and Civics and Government.

Groups visiting the Museum have the option to choose one of the following programs: 

What Is Liberty? (General Museum Tour) 

Recommended for grades 4-12, available for interactive virtual experiences 

In this introductory tour experience, students explore the meaning of liberty as they visit the Museum’s core galleries and current exhibitions. Through multimedia presentations, exhibit discovery, interactive activities, and meaningful discussion, students will learn about symbols of liberty throughout history, be introduced to people from around the world who did extraordinary things in the name of liberty, and explore compelling artistic expressions of liberty. This tour program provides a comprehensive introduction to the concept of liberty, its philosophical and historical foundations, and establishes a solid starting point for further investigation and analysis in the classroom. 

Project Liberty: A Field Trip Challenge (Featured Exhibition Experience) 

Recommended for grades 7-12 

Students will take a deep dive into our newest exhibition Project Liberty: A Design Challenge and participate in engaging interactives that apply design thinking to real-world issues, both big and small, that are meaningful and relevant to their lives. Students will be introduced to design thinking as a problem-solving process through games, case studies, and hands-on activities, then collaborate to generate solutions to major social issues such as food insecurity, gun violence, and homelessness. This program provides a foundation of skills that prepares students for project-based learning and further civic action, problem solving, and constructive dialogue. 

Project Liberty: A Field Trip Challenge features the Museum’s Flame of Liberty, replica Liberty Bell, and Project Liberty: A Design Challenge exhibition. Groups booking this program will have the option to self-guide through the rest of the galleries during museum operating hours. 


Please note: Some artworks in our summer exhibition, In Pursuit: Artists’ Perspectives on a Nation, touch on themes related to gun violence, migration and immigration, and topics that may be sensitive to your students.
