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.

Could have spent hours here reading news items. LOTS to look at. Was a little busy with school children coming in bus loads, but still worth the stop. Great view of DC from the top floor too.

This was an amazing place to visit. Stayed with some friends who took me to see this. Time went by too quickly, so much to see and absorb. Would highly recommend this place to anyone! Visited June 2012

An incredible news experience...way beyond our expectations. If you are a news buff this is the place to visit. However, it does take time to do a thorough job of viewing the multitude of exhibits. We spent about 5 hours and we were stunned that the time had passed so quickly. Your ticket gets you back in the next day so we returned. After another 3 hours we were stunned again. Time flies in this museum. It is absolutely the best package of information available on this topic. History just pours out of each exhibit. Several of them will bring tears to your eyes...911 from a reporters perspective (a kleenx box resides outside the exit!)...Pulitzer Prize winning pictures come alive as they are explained by the photojournalist who took the shot. The FBI exhibit is much better than the FBI Building tour down the street! Go and enjoy...this is one of the best experiences you will ever have in DC. Not cheap but WELL WORTH the price.

Visited here with a friend from Memphis and found it very entertaining. I would highly recommend. The view from the outside deck of congress is also fantastic. The Camelot exhibition of the Kennedy's was also very informative.

It is a must see, and when you think you don't need a 2 day ticket, you might be wrong. I wish we had had another day to really see all there is.
