The Newseum was awesome! We saw all of the JFK exhibits, which were exceptionally well done. We spent 2 full days there and could have easily spent a week there. A really fun museum and makes a great date for couples,but also suitable for families. Who knew a museum could be so much fun? We will definitely be back.

This is my favorite museum. I found myself consistently tearing up at many of the exhibits. Definitely worth a visit! I'm not sure small children would love it but it would definitely appeal to anyone older that around the 4th grader level.
Quotes & Highlights
- For complete and up-to-date information on current exhibitions, please visit the <a target="_blank" href="http://www.newseum.org/exhibits-and-theaters/index.html">Newseum</a> website.
- <em>The Sunday Times of London</em> named the Newseum one of the world’s 12 coolest museums.
The Newseum features many compelling exhibits including:
Blood and Ink: Front Pages From the Civil War showcases more than 30 historic front pages from the Newseum collection spanning the length of the war, from the birth of the Confederacy to the death of President Abraham Lincoln. Front pages from Northern and Southern newspapers show both Union and Confederate viewpoints while illuminating the challenges faced by reporters on the battlefield and the new technologies that revolutionized war reporting.
Anchorman: The Exhibit features props, costumes and footage from the 2004 hit comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. More than 60 costumes and hilarious props from the movie are on display throughout the exhibit, including fictional newscaster Ron Burgundy's "I'M #1" license plate, jazz flute and mustache brush. Ron's iconic burgundy business suit is here too, prominently featured in a revolving glass case. The exhibit also includes a recreation of the KVWN-TV anchor desk and news set where visitors can pose for photo ops. The Newseum's signature Be a TV Reporter experience, where budding reporters can step in front of the camera, features a snappy introduction by none other than Ron Burgundy himself.
Anchorman: The Exhibit also explores the reality behind the humor of the film by telling the story of the challenges women faced when they arrived in newsrooms in the 1970s. A Newseum-produced film features interviews with contemporary news anchors Connie Chung, Maury Povich and Melba Tolliver, as well as news executive Al Primo, who is credited with revolutionizing broadcast news with the creation of the Eyewitness News format. Local TV news promotional ads from the 1970s and photos of popular news teams of the day also are part of the exhibit.
