“Second visit even better than the last”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

I visited this museum last year on a trip to Washington but didn't have much time so was really looking forward to a return visit. I was not disappointed. They offer a free second day and we took them up on it. Well worth the money - absolutely fascinating.

“Informative, interesting, and absorbing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Needs a two-day visit. Loads of fascinating exhibit. Didn't much like the rather high admission fee!

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

Whether you are a journalist or not, you should go. It does not take a long time to see everything... the exhibitions are beautiful and there are some very nice activities to participate! It's worth the price.

We weren't sure we wanted to spend extra money to visit Newseum wiyh our large group but it was worth it! The displays are well done and different. Cafeteria was great too!

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

One of few museums that require payment for entry.
News is largely limited to northern hemisphere - to be expected.
It is nonetheless interesting.
