Attraction

Newseum

555 Pennsylvania Ave, NW, Washington, 20001, DC

At the Newseum, start your visit downstairs from the ticket booth and watch the orientation file on “What’s News.” This entertaining and informative film helps set the stage for the exhibits (especially for young children). Then make your way up to see a large section of the Berlin Wall, Pulitzer Prize winning photographs, and the massive display of newspaper front pages (from around the world) telling the story of September 11. Future journalists and broadcasters can deliver a weather forecast in front of a green screen, get critiqued by a professional photojournalist after taking photos, and play with a giant interactive world map that tells whether or not a country has free, partly free, or controlled press. Open daily, closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas, and New Year’s Day.
