The Faith and Liberty Discovery Center Will Open On Philadelphia's Independence Mall In May 2021, And Other 2021 Museum Openings.

If there's ever been a time to reflect on one's values and the meaning of life, it's been 2020. To aid this collective soul-searching, The Faith and Liberty Discovery Center will open on Philadelphia's Independence Mall in May 2021. Designed to highlight the relationship between faith and freedom in America from its founding through today, the $60 million attraction will offer an immersive and interactive experience facilitated by technology that is new to the museum environment. An adjacent Faith and Liberty Trail will use app technology to bring to life historic buildings – both present and past – as part of the experience. Geared to people of all faiths and no faith, the Center will feature six distinct galleries that explore the common values among three historic instruments: The Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and the Bible.
Each gallery – based individually on faith, justice, liberty, unity, hope, and love – will offer outsized media experiences geared to "getting people out of their phones and giving them an experience they can't get at home," says Doug Fortney of Zenith Systems, which is developing the technology that will drive a memorable visitor journey through the Center. Guests will be able to continue their experience even after they leave the Center using The Faith and Liberty Trail app, which will connect several historic and religious sites in Old City Philadelphia. It will guide people to these locations across the city and allow them to stand in many historic religious locations directly influenced by the Bible. The immersive experience is being designed by the award-winning firm Local Projects, which spearheaded the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and ranks among the nation's most innovative design agencies. Zenith Systems is articulating the design through cutting-edge technology that will bring to life the interactive galleries, a 3D theater, and an education center. Along with Faith and Liberty, other museums to explore opening in 2021: · Academy Museum of Motion Pictures (Los Angeles, CA)
· Comic-Con Museum (San Diego, CA)
· United States Marshals Museum (Fort Smith, AR)
· The Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience (New Orleans, LA)
· THE LUME Indianapolis (Indianapolis, IN)
