What You Can Expect

Admission to Washington DC Newseum

Admission to the Washington DC Newseum

As one of the top attractions in Washington, DC, the Newseum is a dynamic, engaging and interactive museum that allows visitors to experience the stories of yesterday and today through the eyes of the media, while celebrating the freedoms guaranteed to all Americans by the First Amendment.
With this admission ticket, enjoy seven floors of galleries, theaters and interactive exhibits.
There’s “1965: Civil Rights at 50,” which is part of a changing exhibit exploring the relationship between the news media and the civil rights movement in the 1960s. See the stories, images and historic front pages that detailed the events. In the 9/11 gallery, explore the catastrophic hours of Sept. 11, 2001, and the incredible challenges that faced those journalists who were attempting to report the news to a despondent nation and world during and after the attacks.
That is a very small sampling.
Also, see a wide variety of films, including the popular I-Witness: A 4-D Time Travel Adventure and many more. Then take a shot as a photojournalist or reporter in the Interactive Newsroom. There are also dozens of touch-screen game stations, plus events and programs that are updated on a regular basis.

This hotel met all of our expectations. Every person we encountered there, from the front desk people to the concierge to the cleaning people, etc was extremely friendly and helpful. It was clean and conveniently located within walking distance to Union Station and nearly all the museums, monuments, and buildings as well as lots of places to eat.

Highly recommend this outstanding museum. Loved the Vietman special exhibit and the 9/11 memorial as well. Could have spent hours in the room with all the newspaper covers year by year. Plan a minimum of 2 hours. 4 would be best.

Fantastic museum-----so much to see, they let you have a 2 day pass. Well done, well-organized. The cafe food is excellent and portions are huge. Will visit this museum again when in DC.
I wish all students could see the Civil Rights exhibit.

A great place to visit. Perhaps pricey admissions, but well worth the experience. Lots of helpful folks to assist and direct. Well laid out and orderly. Definitely do it from the top down, but hit the 4D movie first. For the news junkie, it could be an all day affair.
