Newseum Teacher Open House

Newseum Teacher Open House

Date: Saturday, Oct. 5 - 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Join us for our third annual Newseum Teacher Open House. Learn about our offerings in history, journalism and the First Amendment during a day filled with sample classes, gallery talks, a studio tour, refreshments and resource materials to take home. One of last year's attendees, Dalila Marquez of Arlington, said afterward: "I felt pampered and informed and left with a wealth of information."

Teachers who RSVP here will be entered into a drawing for dinner for two at The Source, Wolfgang Puck's famous restaurant in the Newseum building.
