HOW cool is this? If you want to find out where this country’s history lines up with faith, this is the place to be. You can check it out with the entire family!
I was out there on Veterans Day and had an absolute blast checking out this incredible museum. But it is so much more than a regular museum because it’s so interactive.
Veterans (with proper ID) and children under 6 get in for free. Adults are only $10, Seniors/College Students are $9 and kids from 7-17 are just $7. It is a VERY affordable day spent in Old City where a lot can be learned and of course, it’s family friendly.
It is located at 101 N. Independence Mall East Philadelphia, PA 19106-2158 and the main entrance is on 5th St.
Here’s a bit from the director of the center, Daniel Corti
Welcome to the Faith and Liberty Discovery Center. No matter who you are, where you’re from, or what you believe, we hope that you will come and visit. When you do, you will find a piece of yourself in the story of America. American values like faith, liberty, justice, hope, unity, and love have shaped our country, drawn new immigrants here, and formed us as a people. These same values have motivated some of our greatest cultural moments and political achievements—from independence, to emancipation, to women’s suffrage, to civil rights. And these values have pulled us through the nation’s darkest days of war, domestic strife, and terrorist attacks.
We invite you to explore these values, their source, and the incredible lives of people they have inspired from America’s founding through today. We hope that as you step into this journey of exploration, you will discover that these stories of great Americans illuminate the values that still unite us today. And we hope these values are an inseparable part of your story, too.
