Stories of the world come alive at the Newseum, where you can go behind the scenes to experience how and why news is made. Stand in the shadow of the Unabomber's cabin, touch the Berlin Wall, marvel at a comprehensive collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs and hear never-told stories from the journalists and photographers who stood on the front lines of history. The high-tech museum features seven levels of galleries and exhibits, theaters, retail spaces and visitor services where you can explore electronic news, unique artifacts, photojournalism, news history and world news. And, since there's so much to see, your ticket is good for two consecutive days. Take your time and see half the first day, then return the next day to catch what you missed. Learn More

It was OK. For a ticket price for $40, you should prolly get more than a cheap t-shirt and a list of clues. Also - a lot of the clues were all in the same area of DC - the mall - so the whole area was awash with other teams. DC's a big city, and we were using the Metro, right? How about spreading it out. At the end of the day, I had a good time, but I wouldn't do it again; the $ spent / fun ratio was too high....
The Challenge is an "Amazing Race"-style dash through the city's streets where your team will combine smarts with speed to solve clues, plot the best route and make it back to the finish line first!
After you've conquered the Challenge and snagged your finisher medal, you'll find a huge festival at the finish line. Kick back with your team and enjoy live music, our hilarious costume contest, outdoor games and great food and drink options.
