National Liberty Museum
The new Welcome Gallery at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania features iPad-based interactive kiosks, multiple audio stories complimenting unique glass art, and an immersive theater experience, all produced by Northern Light Productions. The museum’s goal is to interpret the abstract concept of liberty as a tangible creative force: it is freedom with responsibility.
The immersive theater experience addresses liberty in terms of what everyday people can do to sustain it: how their actions as “upstanders” make a difference, and how values such as tolerance, integrity, empathy, courage, and generosity are the foundations of a society that enjoys liberty. The museum presents liberty as a call to action: Live Like a Hero. Visitors come to understand that liberty is not something we assume we have, but something we choose to create.
