    This is one of my favorite museums in Washington. There is so much history displayed but created through the perspectives of many photographers and journalists.

    A must see for a journalist, a former journalist, a person who watches the news or a person that cares about the world.

    Simply the best museum on the planet in terms of interactivity, engagement, fun, emotion and education. Modest admission price is well worth it. And ticket is good for two consecutive days.

    Very interesting displays of original pieces on major historic events. A bit slanted on opinion.

    The collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs is amazing, as are historical artifacts like pieces from the Berlin Wall.

    Love watching and reading the news? Go to this news/journalism museum. Must-see are the Electronic Window (display of breaking news from around the world) and the display of newspaper front pages.

    News Corp employees get in free. Apart from all the awesome news history, the cafeteria is surprisingly good. They have a wood oven for pizza.

    The Newseum takes about four or five hours to properly experience it entirely. It is definitely worth the time and ticket price for those interested in anything dealing with journalism.

    Best museum in Washington. It's not free (25$ if I remember correctly) but it's worth it!

    This place is perfect for news junkies. Front pages from newspapers across the country are displayed outside. If you're pressed for time, hit the Pulitzer photo gallery and the 9/11 memorial exhibit.

    The Pulitzer Prize Winners exhibit on photography is fantastic. Every photo that's won since 1942 is featured with descriptions of many of them.

    A little pricey considering all of the free museums. Follow the "recommended" path because the layout is weird.

    Food Section: Mac/cheese rich & creamy. Generous portions--best food value I've had in DC. Vegetarians, get roasted veggies & the mac/cheese. Be hungry!

    No more Be A TV Reporter. For your groups and anyone else paying the hefty admission, staff could at least do a quick briefing to help visitors get the most out of their experience.
