great concept, a must do in DC. specially loved the Pulitzer Prize photography and the Berlin Wall exhibits! not the regular experience one associates with an art or history museum! need at least 2.5 hours to cover most of it
We were looking for a museum to go to during the recent government shut down, so we ended up at the Newseum. There is lots to see. We loved the Pulitzer Prize photographs, some iconic images that are hard to forget. There is a video...More
My family really liked this museum. Lots to do and see. Lots to be educated on! The top floor was not complete and the flow a little odd to me, but I would highly recommend. Staff was great and plentiful! Nice that there was a...More
Even though print media is decreasing this is a good place to see how print documented our country. In the past there were very accurate, unbiased descriptions of events and news. Oh the nostalgia for facts--let me decide. The display of daily papers on the...More
This museum is appropriate for history lovers. It is perfect for teens who are becoming aware that there is a world outside of their social universe. There are many teaching moments and many experiential ones. The Wolfgang Puck cafeteria is a great break from the...More
My wife & I spent several hours here and regretfully left early for another, committed appointment. Located in the heart of DC, it is easily accessible as part of a trip to explore nation's capital. The fee is reasonable and the displays are inspiring and...More
From Ethics to Pulitzers, from history to a literal display of the day's headlines, this museum is an easily accessible (4 hours) point of reference for why the media is important. Of particular interest: the 1st amendment display. Our rights are precious and powerful and...More

This museum is outstanding. So many interesting exhibits. For anyone interested in the news, in all its different forms, this is the place. We spent much longer there than we had intended as it was so good.

Chris K is correct about the general proximity of the Monaco and Hotel Harrington, but the Monaco usually isn’t modestly priced because it’s definitely more upscale and the Harrington is modestly priced because it’s not - sometimes you really do get what you pay for. In any event, the Grand Hyatt or Hyatt Capitol Hill are a bit closer to the Newseum than the Harrington if mobility’s a concern. There’s also an Embassy Suites near City Center that would require a short taxi or Lyft ride from the Newseum, but that might have a decent rate.

The only foreign language papers that I recall seeing are part of the World Trade Center display, which was fascinating to see the headlines from a round the world on that day. For more in-depth answers, I would suggest, as others before me have already done, checking the website.
