The Newseum had some amazing exhibits such as the FBI exhibit and the Berlin wall. It also included some incredible photography as well as an interactive section for kids. It's a great way to explore some of the major stories that have shaped our world. I could have spent more time there. I'm looking forward to visiting again before too... More

Every year we take our students and families to the Newseum, which averages about 250ppl. This place is awesome! Even with such a large crowd and there are several other large groups it never seems overpopulated. We love several things: 1. Food is amazing and plentiful at the Wolfgang Puck Restaurant. A dinner averages about $14 with a drink. Kids... More

If you enjoy your morning paper you will thoroughly enjoy the Newseum. See the cover stories from 300 historic front pages going back to the start of our nation right up to the current day's papers from around the nation and the world. There are six floors to the museum each with many exhibits of what we have witnessed or... More

Very interesting content. We really enjoyed the FBI section and the Berlin Wall. Deeply touched by the 9/11 exhibit.

This museum was very entertaining. The exhibits were interactive and attention catching. There is a certain amount of corporate sponsorship on display, but I appreciated the exhibits. This isn't part of the Smithsonian, so it does have an entrance fee, but the views of the city from the top floor deck are almost worth it on their own.

The Newseum is well worth the price of admission, and the ticket is good for 2 days. It took hubby and I two days to really appreciate it -- I highly recommend this place. Anyone interested in journalism, reporting, world news and politics will love the Newseum. It would be an excellent place to bring our grandkids and kids. Young... More

I have never spent four and a half hours in a museum, not even the Louvre. There are so many interesting videos and displays. Unfortunately we could not use the ticket for two days, which is a nice feature. I would not recommend this museum for children under the age of 12. I think they would be very bored. You... More

This museum is my favorite in D.C.! Well worth the admission price and so much political and media history. Wear comfortable shoes and have some coffee before you take it all in! The daily newspapers from all the other states in the front are amazing and free for viewing if you don't want to go in.

You can spend the whole day here, enjoying all the interactive exhibits, videos and more. The Rock n' Roll exhibit is fun.
