Traveling museum reports to Tulsa

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- You can see the story behind the headlines this week as a traveling news museum reports to Tulsa.

Starting Tuesday, the NewsCapade will give Oklahomans a chance to get a hands-on experience on the history of free speech.

The interactive journalism museum will be at the Tulsa Zoo parking lot and is free to the public. It will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Visitors see what it's like to be a journalist, from editing a fictional newspaper to reporting in front of a television camera.

More than 150 front pages from national and local newspapers will be on display as well as a memorial to journalists who died on duty. Each visitor also receives a news page from the day he or she was born.

On Wednesday, Mayor Susan Savage and Tulsa World Executive Editor Joe Worley are among local journalists and city leaders who will be part of a panel discussing First Amendment rights and media fairness at 6:30 p.m.

NewsCapade is part of Newseum, a museum of news history in Arlington, Va. The mobile museum's creator Allen H. Neuharth, former chairman of Gannett Co. Inc. and founder of the Freedom Forum, is scheduled to be at the Tulsa stop.

The NewsCapade will visit all 50 states and one Canadian province by the end of the year.
