Don't miss the touch-screens that teach what it's like to be a photographer or reporter. Also, make sure to take your turn at the Newseum TV news desk upstairs. Lots of fun.

Tips for Families

* Some of the news is of course graphic or age inappropriate so for the most part we tried to stay ahead of our kids to steer them in the right area * Lots of school kids here. Follow their lead and bring a packed lunch to save a few bucks. There is an on-site cafeteria but prices aren't low.

If you know you only have one day for this museum, purchase the family four pack (with additional kids tickets if needed. It's good for that day only. If you can take two days then purchase the regular tickets which are good for both days. We wish we would have packed a picnic lunch to eat on the National Mall-- the food is ok at the museum cafe but rather pricey. Lesson learned!

Our family (My husband and I and 2 kids - Sr. in high school daughter and freshman in high school son) visited Washington DC the end of October since I felt like I would have to give back my mom card if my daughter graduated from high school without visiting Washington DC.  Let me just say, we are not a particularly intellectual family and my kids were not super thrilled that we were going to DC to vist "a bunch of museums and monuments". I'm not sure where I went wrong, but that's another story. This museum was the highlight of our trip. For a family of 4, you spend just over $50 for a two-day pass. We were really tired the first afternoon we visited - we had just finished our death march from the early am ...

I have lived in Maryland all of my life but never appreciated the museums---until NOW.  This new addition to the DC museum circuit is a MUST-GO.  This place is amazing and this is a consensus among all who go there. It is a place that is constantly changing with the times as they put the new set of front pages outside their doors every morning.  The view from the top is spectacular.   My favorite exhibits-- 1.  FRONT PAGES- you can read all the front pages from history back to the very first "newspapers".  It's so unbelievable to be reading the actual papers from those points in history- I read the newspaper where Lincoln set the slaves free and the newspaper that reports on the sinking of the Titanic.   2. ...
