“Excellent Museum of News”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

We only had 2 hours to spend here but we could have spent all day to see it in depth. The news displays were easy to comprehend and very detailed. It was a problem for us to select what to view as there was a lot of detail you could miss. In the end we spent most of our time on the Kennedy and FBI sections.

An amazing look at historic moments, some great, some tragic. Worth the price of admission. Will definitely go back on my next visit there!

“Every news milestone and more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

As a media junkie, I loved this museum. My daughter and I were able to see the things we wanted to see in 2 hours but I can see how you could spend longer. Beautiful view of the capitol from the top floor. The newspaper collection is fascinating. Well worth the cost.

“Newseum is Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

What's not to like? It was fabulous even if we had to pay an entrance fee (w/AAA discount). We arrived mid-morning and stayed until closing. The exhibits were interesting, the venues kept you from getting board, the balcony views were picture-perfect.

The only thing I didn't like were the food prices. Like everything else in DC, the food was a bit high for what you got.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Favourite museum of all in Washington. Don't miss it. From the Berlin Wall to the top antennae from the World Trade Center to the Camelot exhibition and Pulitzer Prize winning photos - it was great. The food in the cafeteria was really good too.
