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.

  • Amazing museum on the history and the evolution of the media and its influence on the world. It is so realist that you leave the museum heavy hearted. The pictures are absolutely breath taking! From the terrace you have incredible views of the city, especially during Autumn where you can enjoy the reds and oranges of the changing leaves!

  • The Newseum is one of the latest additions to the Washington DC Museum collection. I have been to lots of the museums and tour many of length. This Museum is worthy of a full day and is more than a 5-star museum for me anyway. To review and think about many of the things that are part of my lifetime and part of our national history is overwhelming. To see the videos that they have created is heart-wrenching. To relive the Civil Rights and all the activists who gave so much to bring this forward in our history. To relive the Twin Towers. To think about and view all the journalist who have given their lives to bring us what's happening out there in the world. To see a hundred foot screen with more information flowing then the mind can accept. Adding these things and many more together is amazing. Words don't do the justice of the emotions in the feeling that is brought up by seeing these events. To look at a grand map that shows how many places in the world where news is not allowed, that means no freedom of speech, is a significant chunk of the world. We are very lucky to have the freedom of speech and the other Four Freedoms of the First Amendment. Which most people can't name. This is a point worthy of study look it up and see what you think. I want to go back to this one on my next trip to DC as it is a wonderful experience. Don't miss it

  • Hands down one of the best museums I have ever seen. It's not simply the mainstream press promoting the importance of journalism in America, the artifacts on display were extraordinary. Admission isn't cheap at $26 per adult but still worth every cent. See photos

  • I'm posting this because I REALLY want everyone to visit this museum. It really touched me, and I'm sure you'll feel the same. Do take at least 2 hours (minimum) out of your day to visit the Newseum , there is so much to see, learn, it's AMAZING!

  • This was a great museum. It was very thorough and took a long time to get through (in a good way.) Very moving exhibits, especially the 9/11 display. A little expensive, but worth it. They do offer student and other types of discounts which was helpful.
