History continues to unfold in Philadelphia

National Museum of Jewish History

Three new attractions join symbols of American freedom — the Liberty
Bell and Independence Hall — to help tell the complete story of our
country.


National Museum of American Jewish History

At the National Museum of American Jewish History, intriguing permanent and changing exhibitions, rare artifacts and interactive displays mark the trials and triumphs of American Jews through every phase of the country’s history. The 100,000-square-foot, five-story museum welcomes all people, inviting them to discover what they have in common with the Jewish experience in America and explore the features that make their history distinct.

The President’s House
The President’s House: Freedom and Slavery in Making a New Nation presents slavery like never before — in view of the iconic Liberty Bell. Here, people discover what life was like for the people who worked in the executive mansion, including Presidents Washington and Adams and the nine enslaved people Washington kept there. The open-air site includes structural fragments of the original house, illustrated glass panels, timelines, video re-enactments and a spot for reflection.

Liberty 360
At the Historic Philadelphia Center, Liberty 360 surrounds visitors as they discover the nation’s symbols of freedom with the help of narrator Benjamin Franklin. Inside the 360° theater, the groundbreaking, 15-minute indoor show uses the most modern 3-D technology of its kind to spotlight the most treasured American value—liberty.
