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.

The Berlin Wall was interesting to see. However, if you have been to the 9/11 Museum in NYC, you are not missing anything at their 9/11 exhibit. Both days that we had tickets for the Newseum, the 4-D movie was closed. I recommend the Museum of American History. It has SO much more and such a low profile.
Outstanding and powerful Pulitzer winning photography section! Great history of the news and media -- engages audience into media literacy. Has good multimedia pieces, and various sections. The roof deck also has a gorgeous view of the Capitol Building. Very fun and thriving museum!
Spent about 2 - 3 hours visiting. Your are moving fast to see everything in that time frame. Costs about $25 per person, but you can often find small discounts, like AAA membership. They have some very exciting exhibits. The Berlin Wall, FBI, and 9/11 areas seem to be the most popular. They change newspapers around the world you can view daily. They also show newspapers from all eras where you can see the most newsworthy front pages throughout time. While we did not dine there, the food looked better than your typical museum
A great museum with interesting exhibits and an almost overwhelming amount of content. The two day pass is incredibly useful. A little pricey and right next to all the free Smithsonian museums
The trick to the tickets, the best feature everyone misses… The Newseum is one of the most interactive museums in Washington DC. The eight sections of the Berlin Wall are amazing as is the FBI exhibit in the basement. Another favorite is the 9/11 gallery with the World Trade Center twin towers antennae. The Front Pages of world newspapers are updated every day and give insight into how different countries view the world. The 4D Movie is really cool and the cafeteria may be the best in DC because it is Wolfgang Puck’s. News Stories, TV, Radio, and Pulitzer Prize Winning Photography that changed the world come together in this newest of museums. Other highlights include trucks, cars, cameras, and more that made news from around the world. Maybe the best thing is one that most seem to miss. The views up and down Pennsylvania Avenue from the rooftop balcony of US Capital, National Museum of Art, and the Federal trade Commission building are amazing. See photos below. Also most tickets are good for two consecutive days. Whether you are a news junkie or not, there is way too much to see in one visit. Learning about a free press is worth the time.
