Find out for yourself why everyone is calling the Newseum the best experience Washington, D.C. has to offer. Each of the seven levels in this magnificent building is packed with interactive exhibits that increase understanding of the importance of a...more

We loved this - from pieces of the Berlin Wall to the interactive news report that my 12 year old son was able to do live for us to watch. We also love the daily show so getting snaps of the kids with the presenters...More
What a great museum, and so well done. I loved looking at printed news going back to the invention of the printing press. The headlines and news stories from the past are fascinating to read. While my husband checked out 1941, I was reading about...More
Shame the Newseum is closing shop at its current location at the end of the year. The building is fantastic and does an excellent job telling the history of news and housing the many artifacts inside. However, in a city full of free museums, the...More
The Newseum is an excellent museum and the exhibits / facility are very well done. I have visited multiple times and have never been disappointed. I'm so sad that it will be closing and highly recommend folks go to see it before it's closed. I...More
After a 4 day visit to Washington DC, I had about 5 hours before I had to be at the airport, so I decided to see one more museum. I realize DC has numerous top level places of interest. After visiting this museum, I would...More
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

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.
