Ok museum but not worth the price of admission. And don't come hungry! We made the classic tourist mistake and ate lunch there. Lunch for the three of us set us back almost $50. No drink refills on that either.

As a former photojournalist I didn't really learn much that was new, but it brought back a lot of memories and made me appreciate even more the talent, hard work and sacrifice that the journalists of the world put out so that we can stay...More
Some exhibits are geared for 5 yr olds so you can skip those if you want . The newspapers from around are amazing as you can see the headlines around the world for the day & the view at the top of the building is...More
