Just two blocks from the Liberty Bell  and Independence Hall , the National Liberty Museum pays tribute to the profound accomplishment of creating a free society. The museum’s varied galleries explore topics of heroism, freedom, diversity, faith and more, and pay homage to people who have contributed to the creation of a free country.
The fine art gallery features an array of sculptures, paintings, and an impressive collection of delicate glass works that explore the idea of the beauty and fragility of freedom.
