National Liberty Museum

Located in Old City Philadelphia – the birthplace of American democracy – the National Liberty Museum (NLM) offers a contemporary perspective on the boldest and most innovative concept in American history: the idea that liberty is – and must be – a shared pursuit if it is ever truly to be “for all.”  

With four floors of permanent exhibitions and changing galleries, NLM explores the meaning and practice of liberty today. Through a compelling lineup of programs and exhibitions, we invite everyone to spark and engage in meaningful dialogues on the most pressing issues of our time.
