    Very cool look at news through the decades. The 9-11 wall is very emotional.

    Was pretty neat. Way less crowded than the smithsonians but there's also an entrance fee. It is pretty pricey, so only go if you're really interested.

    Great spot, but give yourself more time than you think. It takes at least 3-4 hours to scratch the surface here. Your ticket gives you 2 days of admission though so you can revisit tomorrow!

    Best museum in DC - interesting, original, relevant, and constantly updated.

  • MisterEastlake

    Because of the great view from the outside deck (upper floor), this is one of the few indoors museums you want to go to on a really nice day!

    MisterEastlake · February 12
  • MisterEastlake

    Downside: one of the few great museums you have to pay to get in. Upside: a really great museum (a MUST for news junkies or politicos) PLUS a GREAT view from the outdoor deck upstairs

    If you are visiting DC, visit this museum early on as your ticket is good for 2 days (and there is a lot to read!) Check out coupon sites ahead of time for discounts

    Even though it's not one of the many free museums in DC, it's worth it. Great Berlin Wall and 911 World Trade Center exhibition.

    I've been many times and this is still a great museum. With so many free museums in the area, you might wonder if it's worth it. It is.

    Unlike most museums, you have to pay to get in here. Still, admission is worth the cost once you see the multiple stories of amazing exhibits.

    Best museum in DC, and worth the admission fee.

  • What's Good Here

    One of the few museums requiring paid admission, Newseum is worth it. Come early in the day because you can spend most of it here. There is a lot to see.

    Nikon Pictures of the Year exhibit is the best- bottom floor. And the foam microphone in the gift shop is lots of fun!

    If you have only $25 and a weekend in DC, spend your money here! So much to see that ticket includes next day. Big Berlin Wall chunk, FBIs most wanted, Kennedy photo exhibit, make ur own news report!

  • Jaineen B.

    Simply the best museum on the planet in terms of interactivity, engagement, fun, emotion and education. Modest admission price is well worth it. And ticket is good for two consecutive days.
