If you’ve been hearing chatter about visiting Philadelphia in 2020, there’s a good reason. The City of Brotherly (and now Sisterly) Love is climbing the charts as a city to see, and in 2020 in particular.
Designed by Local Projects, the organization behind the 9/11 Museum, Faith and Liberty Discovery Center is expected to open in late 2020 — a great reason to have Philadelphia on your radar this year.
The Faith and Liberty Discovery Center will offer a unique look into American history, utilizing Philadelphia’s diverse blend of cultures and beliefs, and state-of-the-art technology, making the entire experience immersive and interactive. Guests will be welcomed with a lamp, programmed to interact with each exhibit. Guests can lift the lamp to different exhibits to reveal stories, images, quotes and more along the way. If guests see something by way of their lamp light particularly interesting to them, they can collect it in their lamp for later. After viewing the exhibit, guests can revisit everything they saved to reflect back on later, from anywhere.
Each exhibit focuses on a different value represented in The American Experience, past and present. Those universal values, also referred to as pillars, include faith, love, hope, justice, unity and liberty.
The museum, despite the name, welcomes all faiths or lack thereof to uncover the core focus of the American dream through symbols and drive.
