    Read the wall tiles in restrooms - and laugh. .. In irony for more than obvious reason.

    Yes, it is a paid museum, but totally worth the ticket--$20 gets you in for two days, so take your time!

    Your ticket is good for 2 days- which is good, because you'll need that much time to get through everything. New favorite DC attraction.

    Could not see everything in one day-not to worry. The entry fee allows two days visit!

    If u are journalist or reporter, you must visit: documents, photos, objects and many more. Each one, has their own story

    The best museum in D.C. and your ticket is good for two days -- and it's worth the return trip. I'd list my favorite exhibits, but it would be every one.

    One of the best museums out there. You'll need a few hours.

    Be prepared to be affected by the 9/11 exhibit- totally worth the entrance fee alone. Trust me, a must see!

    The Berlin Wall exhibit is on the ground floor - worth a look!

    Was pretty neat. Way less crowded than the smithsonians but there's also an entrance fee. It is pretty pricey, so only go if you're really interested.
  • Angela M.
    Check out the Elvis exhibit along with EVERYTHING else. Huge range of emotions at this newseum. One ticket covers TWO days for the full effect. Great food court, to boot!

    A real feast for the eyes: textures, attention to detail, installations, environmental graphics, photography... Visual artists would be delighted :-)

    An experience that blends five centuries of news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on exhibits.

    I could spend a week here. Start at the top level and visit it all as you go down to the Berlin Wall

    Soviet spies once passed along microfilm inside hollowed-out coins. Somehow, one found its way into the pocket change of a newspaper delivery person and is on display here. Read more

    Don't leave without checking out the restrooms. They have really interesting news headline bloopers on the walls and in the cubicles. It's a good laugh :)

    Or jump on the metro to the Archives stop and see the widely acclaimed Newseum (newseum.org; £14 adult/ £8 child) – a stunning interactive world of news and information.

    This is a wonderful museum, but I have to warn you, some of the news articles and photographs are so heart breaking.

    The bathroom walls have old headlines from newspapers that are incorrect or mean something different than intended!

    Be sure to let the kids (and adults) report the news in front of a live camera in the Interactive Newsroom. #fun

    You can go in on two consecutive days with the same ticket. It's nice to break up the visit. :)

    If you want to just check out the gift shop you can just sign in your name without having to pay admission but make sure to come back and sign out!

    Don't spend time checking out the amazing exhibits. Instead, wait in line to check your coat then get back in that line to check another item.

    It's very interesting on how "news" was spread from the late 1800's to current.
