The National Liberty Museum is temporarily closed until further notice.
Due to recent announcements from the City of Philadelphia and Department of Public Health regarding concerns over the spread of COVID-19, the National Liberty Museum will be temporarily closed until further notice. While our building is closed to keep our visitors and staff safe, we will continue to offer varied and engaging online experiences for children and families, as well as adults. We are also excited to announce that we will soon be offering even more virtual exhibition and programming content for you to enjoy! Check NLM@Home and NLM@Night for upcoming events and programs.
In the meantime, we are monitoring the current situation carefully and will keep you informed of any changes. For more information about COVID-19, please visit the Philadelphia Department of Public Health. You will also find a comprehensive list of COVID-19 resources compiled by the NLM.
As always, thank you for your continued support as we navigate through these uncertain and difficult times. We appreciate each and every one of you.
Join us on Saturday, Sunday & Monday, January 16-18, for a full weekend of family-fun virtual programs –complete with story time, an art demonstration, and even a call to action– to honor the life, memory, and work of Martin Luther King, Jr.
You'll find complete information on our Programs for Kids & Families page.
The Museum is asking for help in an important audience research study. The goal of this study is to understand how people became part of the NLM community; how they engage with NLM through programs and exhibitions; and how we can best serve you in the future.
As a token of our appreciation for participating in this research program, if you choose, your email address will be entered into a drawing for a $100 VISA gift card.
