Currently the Newseum is running its 60-minute “First Amendment Highlights Tour” four times each and every day, so there’s no reason to miss it. Reviewers note that this tour is a good introduction to the museum, especially if you’ve got limited time and don’t want to miss the museum’s most popular highlights.
You’ll learn about the importance of a free and independent press and you’ll explore how the rights guaranteed by the First Amendment shape everyday life in the United States. After your tour you’ll be free to explore the rest of this interactive museum, and with 15 galleries and 15 theaters, there’s a lot to explore. Learn about the civil rights achievements of 1968, consider the role that editorial cartoons have played in American politics, view real fragments of the Berlin Wall, and much, much more.
