“All news you want in one place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

It is one of the best places for news lovers - you can get from current/live to archived news items. It is a fascinating place with so much historical news. You can spend all day. If you are rushing thru the city as a visitor, this may not be the best place since you wouldn't be doing justice to the place or the entry fee. alow at the least 4 hours

“Absolutely Fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

We spent a whole day here. The introductory tour is a must as it helps you get a good orientaton of the overall museum. This place is a must for any history buff.

Wish I would of had about 4 more hours to spend there! Really liked the room full of newspapers and the 9/11 exhibit was very moving.

“Could have stayed all day!”

This museum wasn't on the top of my list for visiting DC, but I was pleasantly surprised when we went! A great history of the US told through the eyes of the media.

“Make Some Noise/The Camelot Years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Wow, plan to spend several hours here. There are 6 floors of news events and special displays. I felt I had to move on since I was in a group, but it was amazing.
