“A Must!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012 via mobile

What a great museum, an outstanding history of events and people in 20th and 21st century. The Pulitzer photojournalism exhibit, the sports photos, the FBI exhibit, the 9/11 exhibit and the amazing videos of Kennedy and Nixon and newsmen chronicled our world. Put this on your schedule.

“Great new building!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

We loved the larger space of the new building. Seeing a big section of the Berlin Wall, including one that we could touch both sides of, was very meaningful. I also liked the 9/11 wall of newspaper front pages from around the globe.

“Just Loved it, we keep going back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

I dont know what is my favortie part of the Newseum, the history of news, the photo gallery, or the Berlin Wall. Suffice it to say the content is fantastic, it has wonderful hands on for kids, basics like food & toilets are easy to find, I cant say enough good. Have taken friends with us and they love it too.

“Worth going”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2012

Although this museum charges for entrance, it was worth going. Many floors of News history and artifacts. Also had a 3 or 4-D movie. I don't know if I would need to go back, but it was interesting and enjoyed it.

“Don't miss great new museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2012

Newseum is fascinating, lots to see, should have 3-4 hours, this is where they film This Week on Sunday mornings. Front pages of newspapers going back over 100 years, worth the price esp. for teenagers.
