This is our favorite museum in Washington DC. We were here 5 years ago and still spent almost 5 hours in the museum on this visit. There’s so much to see we would have stayed longer if we had more time. Don’t miss it!

Lots of interesting history of press coverage and freedom of the press around the world and through history. Some good coverage of civil rights events, as well.

Newseum presented quality and excellent information. The cafe choices were also excellent. Museum and cafe prices above average for D.C. in a area of free museums and fast food operations. My favorite display was the FBI experience; favorite place to rest feet was watching the...More

Chris K is correct about the general proximity of the Monaco and Hotel Harrington, but the Monaco usually isn’t modestly priced because it’s definitely more upscale and the Harrington is modestly priced because it’s not... More
