Newseum Farewell Tour -- One Last Visit Before It Closes - SOLD OUT

September 20, 2019 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm

Thank you for your interest - this event is sold out!

Before the Newseum closes its doors for one last time this December, come see for yourself why the Newseum is called a “must-see” attraction for PR professionals, and considered one of the top 25 museums in the country.  

For PR professionals and the general public, this museum offers insight into the daily responsibilities of working members of the media and a comprehensive look at the power of journalism in the United States. The Newseum seeks to increase public understanding of the importance of free expression and the five freedoms of the First Amendment:  religion, speech, press, assembly and petition.
Join us for this can’t-miss exclusive opportunity to meet with a Newseum curator and enjoy a self-guided tour where you can go behind the scenes to experience how and why the news is made. This visit includes an exclusive curator-led gallery talk on the Newseum, the history of LGBTQ rights movement, and contemporary LGBTQ popular culture along with a chance to meet fellow PRSA members from across the country! Located in a prime spot between the White House and the U.S. Capitol, this visit to the Newseum will be an experience you can’t find anywhere else.
