“5 centuries of news history”
A 250,000-square-foot museum of news — offers visitors an experience that blends five centuries of news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on exhibits. 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 how news affects our shared experience of historic moments. 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.
This was such a cool museum! The admission prices is a little steep, but it technically covers two visits (next day only), which was perfect. We saw about half of the museum on the first day and came back the next day to see the rest! The permanent exhibits were just as amazing as the rotating exhibits and there was so much to see, I probably could have come back a third day to see even more.
I totally recommend this museum. Initially, I thought the price to be a little steep, but as soon as I watched the orientation film, I knew I was in for a treat. Like the Holocaust Memorial Museum, there are attractions inside that serve as sobering reminders of of the past, and like the Holocaust Memorial Museum, you can spend all day learning here.
In my opinion the best museum in Washington.
