One of the best museums I've been to in a long time. The FBI exhibit was really cool as well as the Pulitzer exhibit. A must see!

Whilst most of the museums in DC are free - this has a fee. But it is worth every penny. I'd highly recommend going. Tickets are valid for two days so go early on the first day you arrive. It was $26.30 for one adult. Outside the museum they display that days front news pages from countries around the world.... More

Before going to the newseum, I was skeptical about it. Yet even me, not the biggest fan of the news, really enjoyed it. Being from the Uk, however, I was surprised that the only news headline in the front line pages from the Uk was from the Guardian, although it might just be the day. I found the 9/11 memorial...

Loved this Museum. We wish we had another day to see it all! A must see Museum! The Rock and Roll exhibit was awesome, as was the newspapers showing our American history and the importance of the press.

If you're ever in Washington D.C. - go visit Newseum. I mean, just do it. My husband and I were there a few weeks ago, and it was truly amazing! I do not usually get this excited about a museum, but Newseum is truly something else. I am a journalist, so I figured I should stop by, but this is... More

If you want to see all 50 states headlines for the day, here is the place. Also, there is many news headlines that show the history of the US.

There is so much to see here that you could easily spend the entire day. Before you spend a single penny on admission, peruse headlines of newspapers from all 50 states and around the world. It makes for some fascinating reading as you quickly see that what makes front page news in New York is quite different than the front... More

purchased a ticket ahead of time, this place is amazing, for really any age, but mainly for anyone who loves to engage in current events, history of past events, media related anything, it had everything you wanted to know about, from newspapers dated back to the 1800's, real artifacts of 9/11, Berlin wall, notorious terrorists, headlines around the world, the...

My husband and I just happened upon this while we were on the Red Bus tour in DC. We jumped off to check it out. It was $24.95/ea and we weren't sure we wanted to commit in a place where there are so many museums that are free. We were intrigued as we walked outside and saw the front page... More
