Came to see the Smithsonian but due to the government shutdown that was off our to do list. Fortunately, that allowed more time to explore more of DC. I was impressed to find out that Newseum receives more than 800 electronic files of newspaper front...More

This museum is huge and breathtaking. At first I was a little put off by the $25 admission fee, as most museums in DC are free, but as soon as we walked in I understood why. There are 7 floors, each with different types of...More

The best news stories of every year from the reporters point of view. Pieces of the Berlin wall, twin towers and the unibomber's cabin are just a few of the items they have here.

I agree with some of the reviewers that the $ 25 entry fee is a bit of a shock, especially in Washington DC, where there is such a cornucopia of exquisite museums, memorials and galleries, all for free. But I guess we're spoiled and maybe...More

This was one of our favorite museums on our trip. It was one of the few that were not government run and did charge admission. However, it is worth the admission. It tells the history of America while explaining the history of the news media....More

The Newseum is open for DC visitors! It is the place to go to better understand and appreciate the importance of the free press and 1st Amendment. As an extra bonus, they have graciously offered free admission for federal employees during the furlough! I spent...More
