Freedom on the Final Frontier
July 20, 2019 – October 31, 2019

Throughout human history, man has looked to the heavens with wonder at its beauty and majesty. Over the millennia, that wonder has turned to questions all characterized by the Inquisition “What is beyond our world?” Fifty years ago, three brave men left Earth in an attempt to answer that question, and two of those men stood on the surface of the moon. “One small step for man,” indeed.

This summer The Liberty Museum will ask the question, “What does freedom mean in space?” Our exhibits will explore the steps that it took for a man to take that “giant leap for mankind,” and what that leap means for freedom on the final frontier. Where will that freedom take us and what might we find when we get there? Come and explore with us as we present our exhibit, “Freedom on the Final Frontier,” this summer at the Liberty Bell Museum.

Freedom on the Final Frontier
Opening Program
Saturday, July 20, 2019
3:00 p.m.

Fifty years ago, mankind took a giant leap from the Earth to the Moon. Even today, Neil Armstrong continues to be a household name. No matter how you think of it, NASA’s first moon landing was an immense achievement. Such an accomplishment begs many questions, one of which is “If you can go anywhere in space, what does such unlimited freedom mean for humanity?”

On July 20th, our expert presenters will help us navigate such a question and bring us to an understanding of the joys and perils this unlimited freedom, which is given to humanity through our continuous scientific discovery. Humanity has gone as far as the Moon, but landing on the Moon begs the question, “Where will we go next, and what will we find there?”

Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children age 5-17. There is no admission charge for children 4 and under.
