The Bill of Rights and You: National Archives Exhibit


The Raton Museum is hosting a new pop-up exhibition from the National ArchivesThe Bill of Rights and You, commemorating the 225th anniversary of the ratification of this landmark document. The Bill of Rights and You spotlights one of the most remarkable periods in American history, explores the origins of the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution (collectively known as the Bill of Rights), illustrates how each amendment protects U.S. citizens, and looks at how Americans exercise the rights outlined in the amendments. The Bill of Rights and You invites visitors to connect directly with the people, places, and events that mark this historic document’s evolution.  This exhibit runs through March 4,2017. 

The Bill of Rights and You co-curator Jennifer Johnson states:

“The Bill of Rights represents the Founder’s vision that it would be the people, through votes, that could change the Constitution with enough consensus. And when the people desired a Bill of Rights, our first ten amendments were added to our governing charter.”

Educational activities and resources are available for schools and organizations that are interested in coordinating study plans with this exhibition.  Contact the Raton Museum to schedule your trip.  The Raton Museum is open Wednesday – Saturday, 10:00am to 4:00pm Phone # 575-445-8979, email ratonmuseum@gmail.com, website www.theratonmuseum.org.
