Dark Philly Adult Night Tour

288 reviews
Leave the kids at home, because this night tour of Philly is strictly R-rated. Be led along the darker streets of the city, hearing stories of hauntings, executions, vampires, and other chilling tales. See the city's beautiful historic buildings lit up at night, and find out facts about them that you won't hear on standard daytime tours.

I consider the National Liberty Museum to be a "hidden gem" that is well worth experiencing. When paying our admission fee (*If you are an AAA member, show your card and save $4.00), we were advised to begin on the top floor and work our way down. However, don't skip the video before you head upstairs. It really makes you think about the price of liberty throughout the world. My eleven year old grandson was fascinated by every gallery, and he genuinely enjoyed viewing and reading the exhibits in each gallery. Personally, I enjoyed the Flame Gallery. The Flame of Liberty is an unbelievable work of art over two stories tall. Be sure to spend some time viewing the Inspiration Exhibit. You will see some famous Americans who have overcome challenges in their lives to become successful in their fields. Perhaps the most haunting exhibit is Heroes of 9-11 Exhibit. Seeing the video and remembering what happened on that day made me realize the ultimate sacrifice so many individuals made on that day. Plenty of visual and hands-on technology to keep kids interested. So glad we decided to visit this museum.

We've done this as a field trip for our middle schoolers for years and we all love it. Everyone (no matter the age) will get something out of this museum!

I have visited this museum on several occasions and it remains as one of my favorite places to send visitors when they stroll through Philadelphia's historic district. Most recently, on a scavenger hunt, which I helped design, I included a most fascinating clue...The NLM is home to the only EXACT replica of the famous Liberty Bell. It's a must see.

I wasn't sure what to expect with the National Liberty Museum when we put it our list of activities to do while spending a couple of days in Philly. I was pleasantly surprised. This museum really makes you think about what freedom really means and what people will do/give up to achieve it for themselves and others. The museum covers so many areas of freedom that people seek and what they have sacrificed or overcome to have that freedom. I highly recommend you check it out and spend some time listening to the videos and reading the stories. The museum did a very nice job.
