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.

Since I work in the news business, I was predisposed to like the Newseum. That said, it's a fabulous museum for anyone who cares about history, the First Amendment, the news, politics, great photography, etc. You could easily spend the day here, or a few hours over two days, since the ticket is for two days. Somewhat pricey, but worth it.

You might balk at paying for admission to a museum in DC, but your ticket is good for 2 days at the Newseum and you'll need it to truly take in all the exhibits, movies, and interactive displays. It's very informative and entertaining.

I had an opportunity to visit during one of the free days and I can only say a one day visit does no justice to visiting this museum. There is so much interesting factors about the changes in the way news is presented. The exhibits are interactive as well. Try to avoid high tourist days, like free ones, as they are very crowded and its hard to read materials and interact with the exhibits.

We truly enjoyed this museum and felt it was definitely worth the price! Touching the Berlin Wall, experiencing the 9/11 exhibit and walking through our history by the Headlines of the day was really great. The kids also appreciated the hands on and interactive exhibits.

It is a memorable museum experience. I had never been, and it was worth the wait! The photographs, movies, and other artifacts were amazing, and it is great for all ages.
