2018 Teacher Open House @ Various Galleries and Spaces | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

Join us for an exciting day as we preview content from an upcoming EDCollection on free speech, launch our Media Literacy Essentials EDCollection, and unveil our website’s new look and features. Admission is free for educators and librarians!

Our annual open house enables us to personally connect with people in the education community. It’s our version of back-to-school night — but held during daylight hours and on a grander scale.

Come sample our classes, take guided tours of the galleries, view items not on display to the public in our curatorial sessions, learn how to book a field trip, and attend special programs. Attendees will receive a free tote bag, food vouchers, and discounts in our Newseum store and Food Section.
