The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza and the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum are pleased to open a new special exhibition from the National Archives, Amending American: The Bill of Rights, which explores the original of the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution and how each protects U.S. citizens. The exhibit is on display at the Sixth Floor Museum beginning January 24th this year commemorates the 225th anniversary of the ratification of this landmark document.
In this volatile time in our country, it is particularly timely to take a closer look at the privileges and protections outlined in this key historic document. The exhibit uses facsimile documents, reproduction artifacts and interactives to connect visitors with the people, places and events that mark the evolution of the Bill of Rights. Highlights include records showing how each of the first 10 amendments affect Americans and interactives that invite visitors to vote for the next amendment and guess at how many times others were proposed.
Be sure the Sixth Floor museum makes it on to your list of things to do in Dallas with the kids during spring break! Check website for directions, hours of operation and admission information, visit www.jfk.org or call 214.747.6660.
