Many of the exhibits were quite interesting, but didn't blow us away. Good way to spend the afternoon. Best exhibit was the Berlin Wall artifacts. Lovely, modern space makes it a nice reprieve from more crowded venues.

After spending the prior day being shoved through the Holocaust Museum, only to see reproductions of a few items, we loved the Newseum. They have items on exhibit that are current and interesting for any age. The music section of the museum on the top...More

We really enjoyed the Newseum. The Pulitzer Photos were amazing but sad. The entire museum was enjoyable and we learned so much.

Great experience, although the price of admission is kind of steep. It's $25, but that offers a two-day pass, so if you use if both days, it's worth it. The Newseum offers a wonderful walk through the past for older folks and a great history...More

Good museum with informative & interesting exhibits. The layout of the museum could be a little confusing. The ticket was good for 2 consecutive days but I could not see needing the second day. Berlin wall, terrorism exhibit & old newspapers were the highlights.

This museum is fabulous! While a bit pricey (about $25), every other museum in DC is pretty much free, so it is worth it. There is also a 10% discount for student and military so keep that in mind and bring your ID! There were...More
