The Newseum has enough permanent and termporary exhibitions to keep anyone interested in history, current events and how we interpret the world interested for hours. I plan to allow more time for my next visit.

This museum should be part of the Smithsonian so it could be free to the public. It is the most interesting, informative museum and everyone should have the opportunity to experience it.

A pretty interesting museum. Displays on the FBI and 911 over the top! Displays coordinated and fairly easy to follow. Bought ticket online right before we got there and saved 15 percent. Top of my list to cost on DC.
