Located in the heart of historic Philadelphia, the National Liberty Museum is dedicated to preserving America's heritage of freedom by encouraging people to find their own place in the story of liberty. Visitors to the Museum enjoy an inspiring and entertaining experience, as they interact with incredible stories of heroes and a collection of contemporary art. Come see an exact replica of the Liberty Bell that still rings, life size children made of jellybeans, and our famous "Flame of Liberty" by Dale Chihuly made just for the National Liberty Museum. Also, be sure to check out our gift shop full of Philadelphia souvenirs, unique handmade jewelry, and fashion accessories.

Of all of the exhibits my wife and I seen, this one was the most confusing to me. Some exhibits were great, but others didn’t seem to tie in with the rest of the theme. Can’t say I’d go back to this one. My wife...More

We stumbled upon this small, unassuming museum tucked away in a non-descript building. We were walking from the Liberty Bell to the dock when the tall ships were visiting. I thought the Museum would be a quick stop but was pleasantly surprised to find so...More

This is a landmark for American history. Where America began or at least some very important law makers of the country resided. It is a must see tour.

The museum is visually very appealing. There are lots of interesting objects to view and learn from. Each area of the museum has a theme, and there are enough objects in each area to make that area special. Overall, this is a lesser known, but...More
