Join the Newseum Education team on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016, for our seventh annual fall Teacher Open House. Admission is free that day for educators!

Advance registration is closed. Register onsite in the Annenberg Theater Lobby on Level 1.

During the daylong event (9 a.m. to 4 p.m.), sample NewseumED classes, tour the galleries and broadcast studio, learn how to navigate NewseumED.org, and attend special programs and archivist sessions. Alumni from our summer teacher institute also will share how to incorporate digital tools into the learning process. Plus, get tips for planning a field trip.

As a bonus, attendees will receive a tote bag, food voucher, and discounts in our Newseum store.

A sampling of comments from last year’s attendees:

  • “I always appreciate the fact that the Newseum values teachers and offers this free opportunity.” — Sandra Laurie
  • “I love hearing about what other teachers are doing with the Newseum resources and also am inspired by the actual classes that the Newseum offers for students.” — Susan Gaina
  • “Everything I heard about the Newseum was true. Outstanding.” — Mary Tate

Open house attendees may purchase discounted $11 admission tickets at the door for up to five guests. Seating priority in programs goes to educators.

Teachers who RSVP in advance will be entered into a drawing for a $250 gift certificate to The Source, Wolfgang Puck’s famous restaurant adjacent to the Newseum. We’ll also email you a reminder before the open house, which is held rain or shine. There is a pay, parking garage at the Newseum and we are a short walking distance to Yellow and Green Metro line stations.
