Interactive, comprehensive. Excellent setup. We loved it. We spent about 2 1/2 hours there and could have explored further. Highly recommend.

The Newseum is a super cool museum, very interactive. There is a lot to see, I could have been there for a whole day. I really enjoyed the "NEWS CORPORATION NEWS HISTORY" gallery and the Pullizer prize photographs gallery.

It takes a lot of confidence to decide to charge entry for a museum in a place which is chock-a-block with free world class Smithsonians of all varities imaginable. But alas, I must say it is worth every cent! Some of the best exhibits were...More
