The mission of the Newseum Institute is to champion the five freedoms of the First Amendment through education, information and entertainment. The Newseum Institute serves as a forum for First Amendment study, exploration and education. The Newseum is a 501(c)(3) public charity funded by generous individuals, corporations and foundations, including the Freedom Forum. Programs of the Newseum Institute include the First Amendment Center, The Al Neuharth Free Spirit and Journalism Conference, the Religious Freedom Center, the annual Moot Court Competition, the Chips Quinn Scholars program and Freedom Sings.
NewseumED.org gives teachers and students free access to curated, standards-aligned content from the museum’s vast collection of more than 35,000 historic newspapers, videos and other artifacts. Optimized for mobile devices and tablets, the revamped website includes lesson plans, interactive tools, and content to keep your students engaged while they learn about First Amendment freedoms and how history informs current debates. The first 2,000 users to register by Dec. 7 will receive a free EDCollection poster of four historic front pages and lesson plans. Follow the Newseum at @NewseumED.
