The history of news reporting has been beautifully displayed in this massive six storey museum. The USA is known for fearless journalism and this museum proudly celebrates that. The history of American news has been traced back from the days of the typewriter to the modern times today.
Newspapers and articles that have reported the most iconic news stories of all time have been set up on display. Pulitzer Prize winning articles and photographs are also an interesting exhibit to see. Major events like the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and the fall of the Berlin wall have separate exhibits that attract huge numbers to this Newseum. There is also a very heart-wrenching memorial to journalists who have lost their lives in the process of bringing the news to the people.
The place is very unique and awe-inspiring. If you want to do something unlike the regular tourist, be sure to visit this one.

If a museum costs money amidst a sea of free museums in DC, it better be darn good. At $25 a pop, I was skeptical, but after several visits to the Newseum, I can say it's the best paid museum in DC. Here's why: - Content: Not everyone thinks the news is exciting and they do a great job of creating each exhibit to be interesting, interactive, and engaging. From the Berlin Wall to the photography to the hall of historical newspapers, it's so fascinating. Definitely check out the social media hall. - View: It's just off the National Mall super close to the US Capitol by the Canadian Embassy. On the top floor, you can go outside to snap a photo of a very cool view of the Mall. - Store: It has one of the best museum stores in the city. - Outside gallery: Outside of the museum, the front cover of each state's major newspaper is on display and they switch it out daily. You don't even have to buy a ticket to see it! If you're visiting DC, the Newseum is worth the investment.
I get bored easily. I can run through almost any museum in an hour, but I really loved this place! It would be a great place to go by yourself and see what you want on your own pace, but fine for larger groups also. I recommend seeing at least a few of the videos in the smaller alcoves off the the side- the movies are like 5-10min and really interesting. Great place for a rainy or hot day, or any day! Close to some great restaurants.
I Sitting in a classroom learning about history is boring. This place makes it fun. I highly recommend this museum to anyone interested in pop culture, news, or history. I will be back for a return visit. There were so many things to do and see, I couldn't complete it all in one day.
Have been wanting to go here forever and finally made it. Spent 3 hours and if it wasn't closing, could have easily spent another 1-1.5 hrs. Interesting to see how news has played into history. Also a huge focus on music and freedom of speech - didn't expect that but was interesting. It's not free but I loved it!! Highly recommend. The Pulitzer photos were my favorite and so The 9/11 section is good if you haven't been to 9/11 memorial in NYC (which I have - highly recommend that memorial/museum if you head to NYC). Love the daily front page newspapers from across the world.
if your in D.C this museum is a must visit. 4 stars only because the FBI exhibit in the basement and the top floor were the most well developed and interesting areas. The other floors were simply not as well developed or interesting. the top floor makes the visit worthwhile.
