Virtual tour series of the First Amendment Museum
Visit the Museum from the comfort of your own home! Join Max, our Manager of Visitor Experiences, as he introduces you to the First Amendment Museum – and the First Amendment – in our virtual tour series.
Each episode explores a different room in the Museum, as well as a different concept of the First Amendment.
Part 1: Introduction to the First Amendment Museum
Join Max as he introduces you to the First Amendment Museum, a relatively new non-partisan, non-profit located in the heart of the historic Capitol District of Augusta, Maine.
Part 2: The First Amendment as a Whole
Have you ever read the First Amendment as a whole? Here, in the parlor, we discuss the 45 words of the First Amendment and the story it tells, in part two of our virtual tour through the First Amendment Museum.
Part 3: Religious Freedom and Intolerance
Freedom of religion, the first freedom found in the First Amendment, is arguably the most important freedom since it protects our right to think. Learn more about this freedom and the history of religious proliferation – as well as intolerance – in the United States.
Part 4: Activism and the First Amendment
Let’s talk about activism. Learn about the personal connection the museum has to an activist who used her First Amendment freedoms to advance women’s suffrage.
