"Journey through the Fourth Amendment" allows you to experience first hand some of the great searches and seizures, both fourth amendment violations and proper searches, which have led to modern Fourth Amendment case law.

Visit MAPP STREET (named for Mrs. Mapp) to see a city block filled with stores, apartments, street corners, cars, phone booths, schools, etc... that have seen some famous searches.  Do you wonder what Officer McFadden saw at the corner of Huron Road in Downtown Cleveland?  Relive October 31, 1963 on the TERRY V. OHIO SLIPPERY SLIDE. 
Want to add a little spin to the fourth amendment?  Jump on KATZ'S SPINNING PHONE BOOTH.

Do you like dolphins and illegal searches?  Head for the Aquatic Mammals Center, pull up a metal bench and enjoy FLIPPY THE DOLPHIN'S Warrantless Search.  Just because dolphins are the most intelligent life forms of the sea, does not mean they are above violating constitutional rights!  If you are more of a manatee man (like me) you will enjoy THE PRIVATE LIFE OF MAXWELL THE MANATEE.


Learn the history of the right to privacy with our little cartoon friend Maxwell, who moves from the peace and quiet of the everglades to the prying eyes of the big city.

While you Journey through the Fourth Amendment, make sure you say hello to James Otis, provided he is not muttering to himself in crazed anger over the writs of assistance.
