Straight off the wire and into the museum, the Newseum makes today’s front-page news part of its exhibits. More than 700 daily newspapers from around the world submit a digital front page 
to the Newseum and more than 80 are printed for display. 
 
These front pages collaborate to tell the rest of the museum’s stories, too, as most of the major exhibits began as front-page stories. Permanent exhibits include the 9/11, Berlin Wall and First Amendment Galleries; hands-on experiences in both the NBC Interactive Newsroom and HP New Media Gallery; and the awe-inspiring Pulitzer Prize Photographs gallery that shows the world’s largest collection of winning images. And the Newseum doesn’t ignore the struggles and sacrifice that come from covering the world’s biggest stories, either, as the Journalist Memorial Gallery is updated each year with the names of brave journalists, photographers, editors and broadcasters killed in the line of duty. 
 
The 250,000-square-foot, seven-story Newseum is something of an architectural landmark on Pennsylvania Avenue. In total, the building houses 14 galleries, 15 theaters and two live broadcast news studios that have hosted ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos and Al Jazeera’s America Tonight.
 
Since moving to its current location in 2008, from Arlington, Virginia, the Newseum has become one of Washington’s most popular attractions. It doesn't take visitors long to appreciate the 
Newseum’s hands-on dedication to both news stories and the people who capture them. 

Practical Info

Newseum is located at 555 Pennsylvania Ave., in Washington D.C. It’s just a few blocks from both the White House and the Smithsonian Museum. The closest metro stations are Judiciary Square and Archives/Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter.
