While it's one of DC's few non-free museums, the Newseum is worth it! Everyone can find something they're interested in, it balances reading/movies/pictures and serious/fun exhibits, and the rooftop view is unbeatable. Huge section of Berlin wall is a main sight.

Its worth the price of admission to see the Pulitzer Prize winning photographs taken through the years. After a couple of hours at this museum you can understand better how the printed media has disappeared in favor of visual.
