We did a one hour tour of the Newseum, it was amazing, they showed us all the different areas which then we could go back to each area that we had more interest in to spend more time exploring. It is large but the information and history is very good/interesting. I would do again. My spouse is a News person, so it was great for him and I enjoyed it also.

Third time visiting this museum and it never fails to entertain me! Great that they change some of the exhibits. Makes it a great location for return visits! 16 year old loved it all.

I really enjoyed it. the view on the upper level is fantastic. there were several of the interactive stations that had broken or missing parts -I don't know how often these are checked. otherwise, this was well worth the time and I would go back.
