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.
