Faith & Liberty Discovery Center on Philadelphia’s Independence Mall
The Faith & Liberty Discovery Center will be an immersive experience located on Independence Mall in Philadelphia, America’s Most Historic Square Mile.
The Faith & Liberty Discovery Center offers a unique lens from which to understand the history of Philadelphia and the nation — faith. Among America’s essential founding documents, the Bible is a significant organizing cultural force that has inspired, influenced, and informed the American ideal of liberty and continues to shape our national identity as a free people.
The narrative experience of the Discovery Center is being led by the award-winning firm Local Projects, which has created groundbreaking experiences for some of the world’s top museums, cultural institutions, and attractions — credits include the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.
As the Faith & Liberty Discovery Center takes shape, a diverse committee of top historians, religious experts and legal scholars from across the nation is helping to give shape to the Faith & Liberty Discovery Center’s narrative experience while ensuring full historical accuracy. This committee includes a Pulitzer Prize winner, renowned historians, bestselling authors, a lawyer who has argued before the Supreme Court and a professor whose scholarship is so significant, the High Court has cited it.
Architectural design is being led by the Philadelphia principals of JacobsWyper Architects' SaylorGregg Studio.
Stay connected as the Faith & Liberty Discovery Center takes shape, and see why people of all backgrounds and faiths are excited.
