I'm a member and always enjoy going to the Newseum. Then one day recently, I was on jury duty at the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. It lasted almost three weeks. Suddenly, one day at lunch, I remembered the cafe downstairs at the...More

Not knowing what to expect, we went along with a visiting family member to the Newseum. All I can say is that it was well worth the entry fee, we ended up staying for over five hours in order to see all six floors. Highly...More

With all the free places to go in DC I have to say I was hesitant but boy was this place worth it. We actually took advantage of the "pay for one day and come back the next day for free" deal because it was...More

I went here alone while my husband was in meetings in DC after reading great reviews here. I was unsure about paying $26 for a Museum when most things are free in DC. It doesn’t disappoint though worth every penny. I spend about 3 hours...More

We enjoyed our visit. Needed three hours to do it justice. Enjoyed the Berlin Wall, 1st Amendment, Journalist Memorial and Pulitzer Gallery

I had planned to spend 4hours here but ended up closing it down. What an excellent museum. It is well planned, offers a cafeteria for lunch or snacks and includes an elevator for handicapped or elderly. They have Thomas get of everything. We loved it!

At each level of this private, fee-for-entry museum, the visitor encounters the First Amendment in action. In real time, a wall displays the news of the day as it happens, every where across the Globe. With interactive kiosks and informative galleries, one can explore historical...More

Came here with a few friends for the second time. Amazing exhibition. If you are a strong supporter of the freedom of the press, this is a place to go. The only downside was that it was not free like the Smithsonian museums.

We spent five hours here. So much to experience. When you immerse yourself in so many stories, you get to appreciate how essential journalism is to democracy. Take time before you enter to see all the day's front pages from around the country which are...More
