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.

Truly an amazing experience! I am a Communications and PR major in college right now in PA and this was an awesome museum to go to. 7 floors and your ticket gets you two days to be able to explore each floor. Interactive and touching exhibits really draw you in and keep you interested for hours. My family and I ended up staying 6 hours in the museum (which you don't have to, that's why they give you 2 days!) because we only had one more day of vacation in DC, but it was well worth it and didn't even feel that long. I would recommend ages 13+.
An absolutely must visit when going to DC - we had an incredible afternoon walking through this whole museum which covers news events throughout the world even up to the present day. The different exhibits are remarkably done and the museum is well designed - you could spend hours here. Would highly recommend a long stop here if you're going through museums in DC.
Found this museum on a website, it's a can't miss attraction in DC. An extremely modern building that portrays the importance that media has in politics. Very interesting facts given and extremely interactive. First time I experienced VR, amazing. The 9/11 section is breathtaking and takes you into the perspective of the journalists. Impressive museum, can't say more.
I loved this museum. It is a cool place to see how the media evolved over time. They have a huge selection of old newspapers what I really liked and they focused on a wide variety of topics and how they were covered by the media. Even though I'm not too interested in media, I found it very interesting and educational. It's a definitely good place to go to learn something new.
It is an interesting place, some great stuff,the VR is cool. However, the place is very self praising, only showing how great the journalism is, however it does not show the whole thing. It doesn't cover the use of news for propaganda, or how yellow journalism can ruin people's life. (Not even a single mention of princess Diana for example) Also no mention of sponsored coverage, and false reporting for personal gain.
