“A testimony of history!! Not to be missed!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

My wife and I went to the museum two days in a row as you need 5 to 6 hours to digest it.
The Berlin Wall, FBI archives, Pulitzer prices photo, 4-D movie and ultimately the Kennedy exhibition are great testimonies of history catches in the news, photos, objects.
In a nutshell, the museum is a most!!! Not to be missed!!

“Very interesting collection of news & media artifacts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

Stunning collection of news and media related artifacts. From pieces on loan from the FBI, to presidential photographs, 911 related items to Pulitzer prize winning photographs. Almost too much to see in one outing. A little expensive but worth every penny. Lots of multi-media presentations.

“Visiting with Cousins”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013

I'm a native & only do the local attractions when family from out of state is in town, but this was extremely interesting. Not just learning how they made printers, etc., but seeing the news through videos, etc. from the early 1900's - very interesting place.
