Join the Newseum, a museum dedicated to promoting, explaining, and defending free expression and the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition, for a day just for Scouts on March 3, 2018!

Tickets are just $11 per person and Scouts under the age of 6 are free. Plus, if you purchase tickets by February 11, 2018, you’ll receive an exclusive commemorative patch! Activites include:

• Show what you know about the Girl Scouts, women’s history, and current events in the NewsMania game show.
• Race across a giant game board as you play Front Page Frenzy, a game that uses historic front pages featuring accomplishments of famous women.
• Show off your best singing voice with our karaoke “Girl Scouts Sing!” Sing songs by famous former Girl Scouts such as Taylor Swift, Mariah Carey, and Sheryl Crow.
• Learn how woman suffrage activists used their First Amendment rights to bring attention to their cause in the short film “Votes for Women.”
• At the “Express Yourself” station, decorate a tote bag, picture frame, or patch button.
• Bring your camera and capture a selfie with a life-sized cutout of Nellie Bly, a pioneer for women in journalism.
• Pack your imagination and head off on the Nellie Bly Global Scavenger Hunt in the Newseum’s exhibits.
