History museums' acquisitions always instill wonder in children who have become bored with their own closets full of skeletons. Discover a body of knowledge with today's Groupon: for $3, you get one admission to the National Liberty Museum in Old City (up to a $7 value). Museum members and children under 5 always get in free, and kids 5 to 17 are $2 with an adult.

Embracing freedom, respect, democracy, and civic responsibility, the National Liberty Museum dazzles independence enthusiasts and history buffs alike with its myriad exhibits bursting with tangible artifacts and educational opportunities. Tote along your familial unit or an amiable stranger and take in the plethora of galleries highlighting conflict resolution, global and local heroes, immigration, and the contributions of inspiring individuals to the nonviolence movement. Poignant sculptures and glass art displays are sprinkled throughout the space and include Maurice Gareau's multihued stained glass rendering of the Statue of Liberty, which was inspired by Lady Liberty's love of freedom and her unimaginably tenacious right deltoid muscles. Your Groupon also gets you 25% off (except for Chihuly glass art) in the museum store, where you can bask in merchandise ranging from posters and jewelry to CDs of the Founding Fathers' fledgling polka/rap-fusion band.


Six Yelpers give National Liberty Museum a four-star average, and seven TripAdvisors give it an average of 3.5 owl eyes.

  • There are lots of video interactive productions that will keep your kids quite engaged. They learned a lot more about the Constitution as well as all the ammendments [sic] at this Museum. It is well worth your time during your trip to Philly – Hoosierdad, Tripadvisor
  • Incredible staff, easily navigable, and inspiring - everything a museum should be - simply not large enough. – Michael U., Yelp, 8/30/10

National Liberty Museum

It's more than a collection of exhibits, galleries, and glass works—though it's all of those things, too. Above and beyond housing art, the National Liberty Museum aims to serve as a mirror to the unique kaleidoscope that is the United States. Visitors to the museum explore eight galleries, each organized to highlight a particular aspect of what it means to be American. Liberty Hall, for instance, houses a selection of White House fine china alongside medals awarded to members of the armed services, while Heroes Hall showcases glass sculptor Dale Chihuly's massive Flame of Liberty installation in celebration of brave individuals.

Regardless of how visitors tackle the museum—although they should never tackle it literally, due to the high volume of glass—they'll likely find themselves intrigued by the thought-provoking collection. When Irvin J. Borowsky founded the museum in 1995, he did so with just this intent, seeking to inspire others to pursue more peaceful lives. But Borowsky may never have envisioned the scale it would one day reach: 78 exhibits, 179 works of contemporary art, and thousands of stories vividly told.

"A unique gem in the historic area"
A very interesting mix of art and tribute to the heroes of our time. It is a nice complement to the other sites in the area. The addition of the artwork elevates the exhibit in a unique way. A donation is requested for the visit
