LOVED this museum. I planned on spending two or three hours here. I spent four hours and I could have stayed longer. Plan your entire day around this museum.

Plan on a half-day visit if you are interested in the history of news from the people who ran through the colonial villages making announcements to the latest technology for sharing current events.
