Thanks for thinking of us!

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Armstrong and Aldrin’s first landing on the Moon, The Liberty Bell Museum of Allentown is asking the question, “What does freedom mean in space?” as a part of their latest summer exhibit. They 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. It’s recurring daily through October, and you won’t want to miss out.

It was very informative, much more than I expected. I certainly didn't expect to spend an hour here. I didn't expect to be able to ring a replica of the liberty Bell. And I didn't expect to learn as much as I did, all for just $2 per person. Our guide was so knowledgeable, not just about American history, but world history. A great experience
Come on down!
I stopped by yesterday with my daughter. The museum is small but filled with information. The guide that day was GREAT!! We had to leave before he completed his talk but will be back and I hope that the same guide is there to continue hearing his informative talk
One of my father's happiest days - seeing his ancestors grave, and his connection to the liberty bell.

Thank you so much to Jerry Still for delivering our EventFULL Living presentation this morning at Moravian Hall Square. Fascinating to hear the history of the Liberty Bell and the story of how it made the journey from Philadelphia to be housed beneath the floorboards of the Zion's Reformed UCC in Allentown. Wonderful presentation...particularly as we prepare to celebrate our nation's freedom. Thank you Jerry!
