    A must see. Don't worry, they have the ticket valid for two consecutive days, plenty of time to enjoy each exhibit. The 9/11 is powerful, and make sure you visit the pullitzer photos.

    Be wary Newseum; you've been put "on notice" by Colbert! All joking aside, this is def a great museum and worth the price tag. The Pulitzer Prize pics and old newspaper articles exhibits are a fav.

    One of the best museums in DC. Fun, interactive and amazing views. Admission fee is worth yet plan on 3hrs till a full day. Ticket is good for the next day also.

    This place is perfect for news junkies. Front pages from newspapers across the country are displayed outside. If you're pressed for time, hit the Pulitzer photo gallery and the 9/11 memorial exhibit.

    Really great museum...one of the few where you have to pay, but worth the price. Be smart and use your ticket to come back a second day for free!

    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

    This is one of the most interesting museums I've ever been to...make sure you have lots of time to explore because it's huge and you'll want to see everything! Pulitzer Prize photographs are amazing!

    True journalism is on display here as you walk through history from a media perspective. Don't miss the daily headlines upstairs, the map of free press around the world or the chance to be on camera. Read more

    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!

    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!

    Founding partner employees get in free (and accompanying family) - but remember to take ID. That said, it's worth the money, kids are free in the summer and you get to come back the next day.

    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.

    You can literally spend an entire day here! As a journalist, I've always wanted to come here -- and Newseum didn't disappoint. Definitely visit the 9/11 exhibit! Highly recommend, despite entry fee.

    The Newseum is a great interactive museum in the heart of DC. Make sure to check out the news reporter section where you get to video tape yourself doing a remote shoot.

    The admission ticket is valid for two days, so you can return and enjoy the museums two days in a row. There is also a student discount - a laughable 1$

    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!

    Don't miss the Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery. It is a very moving experience. A comprehensive collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs and interviews with many of the photographers.

    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.

    This is one of my favorite museums in Washington. There is so much history displayed but created through the perspectives of many photographers and journalists.

    If you are visiting DC, you have to go to the Newseum. It's one of the few museums that you have to pay to get into but it is worth every penny!

    Great museum. Beautiful view of the city from the 6th floor. 4th floor is dedicated to 9-11 events and houses the antenna on the WTC tower.

    Inspiring and very worth the 21 dollars to get in. Look for special exhibitions on photography, look at the Berlim wall and see the sad little antenna from WTC. Read about free speech!

    Love watching and reading the news? Go to this news/journalism museum. Must-see are the Electronic Window (display of breaking news from around the world) and the display of newspaper front pages.

    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.

    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.

    With all the free museums in DC, I waited a long time to visit this place, but it's well worth the price of admission. Block out a whole day and take it all in.
  • Pete D.
    Absolutely worth the price of admission; the exhibitions can be quite powerful. Great that tickets includes a next-day visit at no charge.

    Absolutely fantastic. At first, the $20 ticket seems way too expensive, but it's a two-day pass of complete journalism heaven and definitely worth the money.

    Experience what it's like to report the news, or find the newspaper from your date of birth in one of the Newseum's interactive exhibits. Take one of the best pictures of DC from the 6th floor.

    News Corp employees get in free. Apart from all the awesome news history, the cafeteria is surprisingly good. They have a wood oven for pizza.

    One of the top destinations in DC. Plan on spending the day, if you get tired, here are numerous small theaters showing films where you can rest your weary feet.

    Although admission is $22 for adults, it's worth it for anyone interested in journalism. Very complete coverage of press/society interaction!

    The Newseum takes about four or five hours to properly experience it entirely. It is definitely worth the time and ticket price for those interested in anything dealing with journalism.
