Newseum Admission in Washington, DC

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    As one of the top attractions in Washington, DC, the Newseum is a dynamic, engaging and interactive museum that allows visitors to experience the stories of yesterday and today through the eyes of the media, while celebrating the freedoms guaranteed to all Americans by the First Amendment.
    With this admission ticket, enjoy seven floors of galleries, theaters and interactive exhibits.
    There’s “1965: Civil Rights at 50,” which is part of a changing exhibit exploring the relationship between the news media and the civil rights movement in the 1960s. See the stories, images and historic front pages that detailed the events. In the 9/11 gallery, explore the catastrophic hours of Sept. 11, 2001, and the incredible challenges that faced those journalists who were attempting to report the news to a despondent nation and world during and after the attacks.
    That is a very small sampling.
    Also, see a wide variety of films, including the popular I-Witness: A 4-D Time Travel Adventure and many more. Then take a shot as a photojournalist or reporter in the Interactive Newsroom. There are also dozens of touch-screen game stations, plus events and programs that are updated on a regular basis.

    I doubt that this place would interest children/teenagers, but it certainly interested me! There's lots of newspaper covers (I managed to find some from the year I was born). There's lots about 9/11 and the Boston Marathon bombings as well as the Berlin Wall. Lots...More

    My 17-year old daughter and I went to the Newseum and loved it! It was so much more than we expected - there was wonderful content about the news-making process and people who make the news, but the depth of information about the actual news-worthy...More

    Me and my boys, age 17 and 20, thought this was one of the best parts of our trip. Very well done and interesting. We spent a large part of a day here

    This is exactly what it sounds like...a museum of news. My wife heard good things and wanted to take our kids (ages 18, 16, 13 & 6). We were there less than 2 hours. My 6 and 13 yr olds were done and ready to...More

    This museum rates right up there with other great ones of the country, if not the world. You are allowed a two day pass. Seniors get a discount. This stop is a must-see.

    Not a rumor. "End of the year (2019)" is the latest news for the Newseum closing date at the current location. The current building is already sold to Johns Hopkins University. Nothing I read gave a clear indication of... More
