Spent a great few hours exploring this cool museum. Their are Exhibits for all age groups and are arranged in a easy to navigate manner. Especially liked the collection of Pulitzer prized photos. Not an inexpensive visit but worth the price of admission

Wonderful displays of journalism and how it has helped to shape our history. Lots of films and pictures. Also part of the Berlin Wall and one of the towers.

This place is great. My daughter recommended it! I loved best the Pulitzer Prize wining photo video room. All the pics with interviews from the photographers going details as to why, where etc about their pics. The 911 floor was also amazing. A must see

This is not a quick museum to see. It is a HUGE museum. There are so many interesting areas to explore. I was worried our 8 and 11 year old would get bored but we had to drag them out. The kids have a chance...More

One of the best museums ever. The Kennedy Camelot photography exhibition was fantastic and the FBI exhibit was surprisingly good with real exhibits and information. Highly recommend the Newseum as a must go place in Washington DC. You will easily spend all day there if...More
