Newseum - Review
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.

Newseum, Washington D. C. Reviews
We loved the exhibits. We were in Washington for two days only and planned to do Newseum on day one and Smithsonian on day two. We were so impressed by the detailed exhibits at Newseum that we ended up coming here both days and didn’t do Smithsonian. At the outside of the building they have Daily newspapers from various countries - now that is some effort!! Loved looking at 9-11 exhibit, Gorbachof’s USSR pen and Berlin wall piece. Loved it!! Highly, highly recommended.
I lived in DC. And was a tour guide from 2012-2013 This is by far my favorite museum in DC. Yes the Smithsonian’s are fascinating and they have an advantage of being free thanks to James Smithson. But I’d recommend going to the Newseum. Of all the museums it’s really the only one that even after being in it around 20 + times I always look forward to going back. Also, tickets are good for 2 days. So you can go back the next day to see the rest. It’s well worth it!
The exhibits at the Newseum were amazing. When I bought my ticket on site, they told us it would be good for the following day as well, and I wish I had been able to go a second day. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. Any time I looked lost, they checked to make sure I was enjoying my time. The 9-11 Exhibit was absolutely stunning and heart wrenching. I'm glad I was able to see it.
A great place to visit. You could definitely spend an easy 3-4 hours in here easily. Very friendly staff. I was intrigued with the fact that they change the newspapers EVERY MORNING FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD! PRETTY COOL! You have to check out the deck on top. Great picturesque views. The Berlin wall brought tears to my eyes. I would definitely make this my 2nd favorite place. The food is also very good! I loved everything about this state of the art facility. Also, I must mention whatever you don't get to see, KEEP YOUR TICKETS THEY ARE GOOD FOR THE FOLLOWING DAY! AWESOME PLACE!
Incredibly moving. "A photo can speak 1000 words" comes to life here. The photos in the Pulitzer exhibit, and Photos of the Year exhibit speak to the depths of humanity, its beauty and its depravity. I brought my son as he is preparing for journalism school, and he was really impressed. He found a ton of inspiration. The museum is relevant, modern, interactive, and well laid out. It is also full of surprises. The Pennsylvania Ave history on the balcony was really unexpected, and informative. We went on a Sunday in August, and it was not at all crowded. Newseum is truly a gem for history buffs and First Amendment defenders.
