Event description

Description

Journeys to Freedom is a documentary that tells the stories of Vietnamese refugees who left Vietnam in overcrowded boats risking life and limb for freedom after the fall of Saigon. It is a tale of courage, of success and of gratitude for the American Veterans who fought for them, and in some cases, fought side-by-side with them.

  • The evening will begin at the Independence Seaport Museum with a showing the 20-minute video, followed by an audience question and answer session with several of the video's participants.

  • The evening will conclude at the Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial -- a few blocks away -- with a twilight tour of the Memorial featured in the video. The tour will be given by board members who have an intimate knowledge of this Philadelphia treasure. Tour is weather permitting

This is a film that every American should see, especially Vietnam Veterans who will better understand their legacy.

FAQs

What are my parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking at the Museum is expensive but close to the door. Parking across Columbus Blvd is 3-hour metered parking at a very reasonable price. If you park across from the Hilton, it's a short walk around the corner, by the water, to the museum.

Do I need a ticket to get in?

Seating is limited so it's a good idea to reserve your space in advance. If you do not have a ticket, and seats are available, we'll be happy to have you join us.
