Engraved Newseum tablet to be transferred

1 min read

The engraved tablet on the now-shuttered Newseum is being transferred to Philadelphia as planned, according to The Smithsonian Magazine and local news outlets.

The Newseum, a museum in Washington, DC, permanently closed in December 2019. Plans to relocate the 74-foot tall, 50-ton marble tablet on the building’s facade have been in the works for months, according to local news outlets.

The tablet, which is engraved with the text of the first amendment, will be installed at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, journalists report. Many are pointing to this months-long plan after Texas Senator Ted Cruz falsely claimed, “they just jack-hammered the text off the wall.”
