What you'll learn
The EXPRESSway explores the power of the First Amendment and civic participation — and inspires participants to use their own freedom of expression in a fun way. After a group welcome and short film illustrating contemporary uses of the First Amendment, participants customize their own free expression artifacts, which may include magnets, bumper stickers, buttons or slap bracelets. (Additional merchandise, such as tote bags or water bottles, are available for an additional fee.)
Free, with admission
- Learning Center (max 36)
Classes must be requested at least one week in advance. Please be advised that your preferred date may not be available, so have at least two dates in mind. We recommend arriving at the Newseum at least 15 minutes before your scheduled class time.
This class requires a minimum of 12 students and a maximum of 36 students in the Learning Center classroom. Groups larger than class capacity will be assigned staggered class times based on your group’s window of availability. We appreciate hands-on assistance from chaperones when needed.
When a school fails to appear for its scheduled Newseum class, it prevents other schools from using that slot. Please notify us at least one week in advance if you must cancel your reservation.
Assistance (e.g. ASL interpretation, assistive listening, description) for programs/tours can be arranged with at least seven business days’ notice. Please contact AccessUs at AccessUs@newseum.org or by calling 202/292-6453.
