“Can I say and do whatever I want, whenever I want?”
“What would life be like if there were no First Amendment?”
“When, where, and how do I (and can I) exercise my First Amendment rights?”
These and other questions will be explored through the museum’s interactive exhibits as well as online and off-site programming.
1A Stories Project
What does it mean to live your freedoms? That’s the question we hope to answer with our First Amendment Stories project. We have already recorded interviews with 30 everyday Americans, and we will ultimately collect and share 300 stories from people around the country about their personal experiences with our First Amendment freedoms.
Everyone has a story about the powers and limits of freedom – what’s yours? Contact us today to share your story.
While the museum is currently undergoing restoration and exhibit installation, we are still offering limited public tours.
You can visit us Tuesdays through Thursdays from 10 am to 2 pm. Suggested donations are welcome. Directions here.
In the meantime, we will begin to offer online programming and exhibits here on our website. To stay informed about this, signup for our e-newsletter.
Please note that we are temporarily closed due to COVID-19.
