The National Liberty Museum is temporarily closed through January 1, 2021.

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 now through January 1, 2021. 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.
