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.

Upcoming Exhibits

Trees, Trains, and Traditions
October 17 – December 31, 2019

From the Revolutionary War Hessians bringing a tree in from the cold before the Battle of Trenton in December of 1776 all the way up to the present day, the Christmas tree has become a standard symbol of the celebration of Christmas in America. For many Americans, the image of a Christmas tree would be incomplete without a toy train set running underneath it.

This Christmas season, The Liberty Bell Museum’s holiday exhibit will feature “Trees, Trains, and Traditions.” We will explore the history of Christmas trees and the putz and trains that have been set up beneath them over the centuries. Let your inner child out and your nostalgia run wild as you enter the world of Christmas past through “Trees, Trains, and Traditions.”
