This is one of the best museums in the world I have ever visited. It is well worth the price. An outstanding look at news collection and reporting through the years. Lots of great history. Also a sobering look at journalism and its risks in...More
Friends insisted this was the most important museum, and now I agree. This couldn’t be more important in era of blaming journalists and news organizations for inconvenient truths. (I’m writing this the week of Khashoggi’s murder and the attempts to soften the story, but every...More
Just incredible - this museum is probably in my favorite two museums, along with the new National Museum of African American History and Culture. Just wow... and I wish that they'd focus more on the Don Bolles event - and feature this in a new...More
One of the few museums that require a fee but admission is good for 2 days. Lots of exhibits about freedom of the press history, examples of pulitzer prize winning photos and very current information as well. Exhibits about 9/11, reporters killed, old videos of...More
I didn’t want to give a paid museum my fave museum rating but the Newseum is worth the price of admission!

I liked seeing the Berlin wall and the FBI exhibits. It was so cool seeing the newspapers...More

Chris K is correct about the general proximity of the Monaco and Hotel Harrington, but the Monaco usually isn’t modestly priced because it’s definitely more upscale and the Harrington is modestly priced because it’s not - sometimes you really do get what you pay for. In any event, the Grand Hyatt or Hyatt Capitol Hill are a bit closer to the Newseum than the Harrington if mobility’s a concern. There’s also an Embassy Suites near City Center that would require a short taxi or Lyft ride from the Newseum, but that might have a decent rate.

The only foreign language papers that I recall seeing are part of the World Trade Center display, which was fascinating to see the headlines from a round the world on that day. For more in-depth answers, I would suggest, as... More
The only foreign language papers that I recall seeing are part of the World Trade Center display, which was fascinating to see the headlines from a round the world on that day. For more in-depth answers, I would suggest, as others before me have already done, checking the website.
