Owner description: Find out for yourself why everyone is calling the Newseum the best experience Washington, D.C. has to offer. Each of the seven levels in this magnificent building is packed with interactive exhibits that explore free expression and the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly and petition. Whether you have just a few hours or want to spend all day, you'll find something for everyone in the family in the Newseum's 15 theaters and 15 galleries.

We spent a whole day here. The introductory tour is a must as it helps you get a good orientaton of the overall museum. This place is a must for any history buff.

Wish I would of had about 4 more hours to spend there! Really liked the room full of newspapers and the 9/11 exhibit was very moving.

This museum wasn't on the top of my list for visiting DC, but I was pleasantly surprised when we went! A great history of the US told through the eyes of the media.

Wow, plan to spend several hours here. There are 6 floors of news events and special displays. I felt I had to move on since I was in a group, but it was amazing.

I wasn't going to go to the Newseum because it wasn't free like everything else in D.C. Thanks Goodness I decided to go! What a great venue! They actually have the antenna from the south tower of the World Trade Center on display. That was truly mesmerizing. In the same room, they have front cover newspapers from around the world featuring the 9/11 attacks. It really brought it all back to life.

As a part of our convention, we also got to have dinner on top of the Newseum. It was fabulous! I can't wait to visit here again!
