National Liberty Museum

Glass art representing the fragile qualities of freedom

The National Liberty Museum was founded to help "combat America's growing problem with violence and bigotry by celebrating our nation's heritage of freedom and the wonderful diverse society it has produced." The museum is located at the foot of Franklin Court, across from Carpenters' Hall. It has four floors of wall displays, interactive touch-screen computers, and an abundance of glass art.
