Liberty Bell Museum
During the Revolutionary War, the British pursued the Liberty Bell as one of the spoils of war, threatening to melt it down into weapons in the fight against their colonies. In turn, the colonists stashed the Liberty Bell somewhere here—at the site that would one day become the Liberty Bell Museum—which was a testament to their cunning and hardiness.
The Building: Zion's Reformed United Church of Christ is the site of Allentown's first church, which not only protected the Liberty Bell, but served as a hospital during the Revolutionary War and as a place to hear the Declaration of Independence being read. The church is on the National Register of Historic Places.
Eye Catcher: an exact replica of the original liberty bell, except this one can be rung.
Permanent Mainstay: trace the story of the bell's hiding via a mural hand painted by Wilmer Behler.
Don't Miss: every Christmas season, the museum hosts the legendary puppet show of Pip the Christmas Mouse, which dates back to 1962
