The Newseum is worth every cent of the entrance fee. It is one of the very few museums which is not free in Washington DC (adults $22.95) but is well worth it. Check the Newseum's website before you go as they may offer discount vouchers...More

We loved this museum, and stronglu recommend to all ages. Very informative and well planned. It starts from the top, as you go down the levels. It also has a very nice Cafeteria, where you can pause for lunch.
