This museum talks about liberty and how to maintain it. It also talks about those who don't have their liberty. My seven year old got quite emotional at this museum so be careful bringing younger kids here. It's very thought provoking.

Excellent little museum that is aimed at visitors of all ages. Beautiful displays, much of it using various forms of glass, exploring the meaning of liberty and the struggle for it. Unique, and should been seen by travelers and locals alike.

If you want to see the best of the human spirit this is the place to go. I left feeling uplifted and had learned about many heroes I hadn’t heard of before.

Great, off the beaten museum path. Small and easy to manage with minimal crowds. Nice gift shop with items outside of typical souvenirs. Affordable with friendly staff.
