We really enjoyed the Newseum and I found the JFK exhibits and the FBI sections to be engaging and interesting. The photographs of the Kennedy family were spectacular and whilst the video of JFK's 1000 days was only alright as a politics buff I had a great time. There are also some interesting sections on the Berlin wall and 9/11 and the Newseum has a great view of the Capitol that everyone should take time to visit. The biggest problem was the early closing time (5pm) which didn't give us enough time to see everything even though we started just after 1. The tickets are valid for two days but we simply couldn't get back with so much to do in Washington on our trip. Had the Newseum been open later we would happily have stayed and seen the Sports section and some of the interactive exhibits. Overall a great place to visit but needs a lot of time to see in full.
