    Watch the video about the journalists who reported on September 11. And bring some tissues. It's very enlightening. #mco435

    Staff is beyond rude when checking in for a 9am appointment. Paperwork says to check-in 15 minutes before an appointment. When you follow directions, the counter staff yells at you like you're a kid.

    Definitely worth price of admission. Be sure to check out Tim Russert's office. Newseum is one of Washington's new 'must-dos'.

    Skip the orientation video. Didn't help and was confusing. Start at the top and work you way down. The Pulitzer Prize photo room is too intense format kids.

    The best part is the gallery of photographs with the different headlines in history, including the picture of the child on fire from the Vietnam War.
