Visited with my teenage journalist and we spent over 3 hours here and could have stayed longer. Great interactive exhibits, a must for history buffs. Take your time, watch and listen to the videos, read the exhibits.

From the Perspective of a 14 year old... This museum was great. If you were to look at everything it would take you hours! The information inside and the architecture inside is GREAT! Starting out go to the basement and through the escalator and look...More

Stopped off here to see the museum and it was well worth it. Cheap entry 25 US dollars and 6 levels of history and superb exhibits strongly advise all visitors stop here. Great food internally also. If you like print media history the main level...More

I am prejudiced as a former journalist but this museum is not overcrowded, interesting, well presented and a timely reminder of the importance of the press in today's dangerous world. Do go. We appreciated the loaner wheelchair and easy handicapped access too.

I had never heard of this, but it had been recommended highly. I think we spent more time here than anywhere else, because there is so much to take in, and it's different from your normal object-oriented museums. The photojournalism was the highlight for me....More

loved most of this museum! But the final section was so Anti-Trump we had to leave. VERY imbalanced on this President. Criticized him for criticizing press without showing how poorly and incorrectly they have covered him.
