Owner description: Find out for yourself why everyone is calling the Newseum the best experience Washington, D.C. has to offer. Each of the seven levels in this magnificent building is packed with interactive exhibits that explore free expression and the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly and petition. Whether you have just a few hours or want to spend all day, you'll find something for everyone in the family in the Newseum's 15 theaters and 15 galleries.

An interactive museum which provides a wonderful experience for young and old. Blending digital, visual and print medium, the museum presents information about some of the most historic events that occurred around the world. It transports you back in time as well as gives up to the minute reports on latest event. Best museum in town.

It is one of the most expensive museums in town but The News Museum is well worth the money. There are exhibits and activities for people of all ages. A family can spend an entire day in the musem but I would allot four hours. The displays are showcased in a way that is easy for people of all ages to understand.

We spent 6 hours here and missed a couple of the exhibits because we ran out of time. Includes a really moving exhibit about journalists who lost their lives reporting stories from different wars and 'hotspots'. Don't miss this when visiting DC.

the newseum is quite expensive to visit - can't remember the exact price, but I think it was more than $15 per person. It's very unfocused inside, hundreds of computer screens showing random headlines and stories. Very disjointed
