The museum is not apart of the Smithsonian so you have to pay. However, there’s a fantastic collection of newspapers displayed in chronological order and different newsreel. Plan on spending time reading all the history. Very fascinating.

Great tribute to journalism throughout the centuries, and to the first amendment. Go when you can. Sadly, this great museum is closing at the end of the year.

Newseum is closing at the end of the year! You don't want to miss the 911 Exhibit. The elevators are a great engineering marvel. I enjoyed looking at the headlines over the past decades. Hope they will find a new home. don't delay

Lots of reading. Especially enjoyed the spy section on the bottom floor. Only problem we had (which we had in almost all museums) was that we were riding sit down scooters and could not leave our scooter. Had to stay with it. Understandable. Heard this...More

This relatively new Washington DC museum, just north of The Mall, is a place to lose yourself for an hour, a day, or even 2 days ( the tickets are for 2 days). From journalism of the 15th century to an exhibit featuring John Stewart...More

Enjoyed our visit to the Newseum and found out it will be closing at the end of the year. So much information. It’s a complete history lesson in a few hours. The 911 exhibit was moving. The entire building is set up for easy access....More

You can literally spend two days at this museum. It captures our history and the role media has played in it. This is for the entire family and fairly inexpensive. The ticket is good for two days.

Great museum to visit. Really interesting and informative exhibits. You can touch the Berlin Wall, watch the history of the press, see the history of comedy in the news, the Daily Show, etc. Definitely worth a visit. If you have AAA or are an educator,...More

Have been to DC multiple times and this was always on my to-do list. So glad I took the time to visit. You start in the basement watching a short film which gives you an overview of the floors and work from the top down....More
