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.

We wandered in on a whim. It was interesting but not what I expected. I am more interested in the American revolution. The displays were very elaborate and interesting.

Thank you for your feedback! I'm sorry it wasn't so historical, we like to think we pick up where the revolution left off, but thank you for stopping in and taking the time to explore our collection!

We purchased the entrance fee online ($4.00 each). Nice gift shop but pricy! Very moving 9/11 memorial with photos firefighters, policeman, and military who died in the attack. Lots of nice glass art! Our 8 and 11 year-old boys enjoyed the stop.

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.More

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.
