This museum is small yet very important as it recognizes heroes and heroic events throughout the world. Impressive but does not take all day to go through and is very near Museum of American Revolution.

We didn't go in since it seemed expensive for the price but just hung around the gift shop, which has some interesting stuff. Also has a replica Liberty Bell that is great for photos.

Hi Worldtravelorplus, We are sorry you found our $7 admission too expensive but glad you enjoyed our gift shop. We are always happy to let guests take a picture in front of our replica Liberty Bell and we will even ring it for you!

Showing people that work for liberty and equality very artistically. Reads as both a history museum as well as an art museum. I will definitely make this a stop whenever I am in Philadelphia.
