The trick to the tickets, the best feature everyone misses… The Newseum is one of the most interactive museums in Washington DC. The eight sections of the Berlin Wall are amazing as is the FBI exhibit in the basement. Another favorite is the 9/11 gallery with the World Trade Center twin towers antennae. The Front Pages of world newspapers are updated every day and give insight into how different countries view the world. The 4D Movie is really cool and the cafeteria may be the best in DC because it is Wolfgang Puck’s. News Stories, TV, Radio, and Pulitzer Prize Winning Photography that changed the world come together in this newest of museums. Other highlights include trucks, cars, cameras, and more that made news from around the world. Maybe the best thing is one that most seem to miss. The views up and down Pennsylvania Avenue from the rooftop balcony of US Capital, National Museum of Art, and the Federal trade Commission building are amazing. See photos below. Also most tickets are good for two consecutive days. Whether you are a news junkie or not, there is way too much to see in one visit. Learning about a free press is worth the time.

One of the more emotional museums I have been to! Very informative and interactive! If you are a journalist or interested in news and journalism, go check it out! The Pulitzer award photo exhibition is very well done!

This museum is a lot of fun. From a wall of newspapers with the daily news from around the world to excerpts on his the news covered certain topics, is a wonder. There is a lot to learn both about the history of news and the way history is affected by news. I highly recommend the news Wall (for a bit of bizarre nostalgia over news you may remember seeing) and the young activist exhibit.

Spent a full day there with a teenager. Got there a little after 10 in morning and left right at 5 and never bored. Plenty to see and do here. Probably not great for young children but excellent for high schoolers. Well worth the admission cost and don't forget online or AAA discounts.

This is one of the best museums in DC. Unfortunately, it isn't part of the Smithsonian, so tickets do cost $18. But that price is well worth it. There are some really cool objects like a piece of the Berlin Wall and the radio antenna from the north world trade center. There are lots of exhibits dedicated to the freedom of the press and how that has influenced US history. On the top level, you can get some nice views of the national mall and the capitol building.

The only downside to this museum is the price. One of the best museums I have been to. Updated to what is currently going on in the world and very thought provoking. Would defiantly recommend to anyone visiting D.C.

Yes! Worth the price.... if you have time and are interested in history/journalism. Excellent for students studying or interest in news. Fun interactive 'green screen' be a reporter area. Great pic option on upper floor. Powerful exhibits on Berlin Wall, 911, and those who died reporting.

Great experience and a good mix of interactive exhibits. Cool balcony on the top floor. A bit pricy. Cafe had a good selection of healthy, high quality food.
