I know that IrishFan has already mentioned this promotion in response to another query, but I thought it deserved a thread of its own.
The Newseum, which is arguably the best museum in D.C. that charges an admission fee, has announced that all visitors aged 18 and younger get free admission with the purchase of an adult admission. And it gets even better--one paid adult admission allows you to get up to 10 free "kids and teen" admissions.
There's a lot for kids and teens to see and do at the Newseum, even if they think news is boring. There are some great films on sports and an exhibit on Sports Illustrated photography. There's an exhibit on Elvis now. There's a 4-D film that the kids might enjoy. There's an exhibit on Presidential pets. There's a great exhibit which the older kids and teens might like on some cases the FBI handled (G-men and Journalists) including the Unabomber's shack. There's part of the Berlin Wall and an East German guard tower. Finally, there's interactive things to do, including doing your own broadcast.
So, if you have already seen the various Smithsonian museums (which are fabulous and free), you might want to include the Newseum in your visit. For more info, see www.newseum.orgEdited: 07 July 2010, 15:03
