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.
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
I did an intense tourist blitz in DC, everything from the Smithsonians to monuments and beyond and Newseum was hands down, the best thing I saw. It is one of the incredible museums I've been to! The exhibits are fascinating, in particular the 9/11, FBI...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
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

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.
