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 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
