March 18, 1999: ‘NewsCapade’ Hits the Road
“NewsCapade with Al Neuharth,” the Newseum’s mobile museum of news, launches a 50-state tour of exhibits and programs. The world’s only traveling interactive museum of news gathered journalists and citizens in every state to discuss the role of a free press and the need for a fair press. The tour began in San Francisco and ended in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, in January 2001, on a pier between two Navy ships marking the start and end of World War II for the United States: the sunken U.S.S. Arizona Memorial and the retired battleship U.S.S. Missouri.
