National Liberty Museum

321 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106


The National Liberty Museum is one of the newest museums in the city of Philadelphia. In this faith friendly setting, remarkable displays, beautiful glass sculptures, biblical and interfaith teachings combine to underscore the role of faith in creating and preserving the fragile and precious gift of liberty.

The National Liberty Museum welcomes thousands upon thousands of students and visitors who are reminded that religious liberty is an expression of loving our neighbor as ourselves, even when they believe differently than we do. As we read in Leviticus 19:18, “Love your neighbor as yourself” (NIV). We find the same teaching in Matthew 22:37-39.

The importance of teaching the truth and duties of liberty is underscored by Thomas Jefferson who wrote, “There has never been a nation that is ignorant and free. That has never been and will never be.”
