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

A friend and I attended this event and had wonderful time. Upon arrival we were paired up with another group of two women and given our instructions. It was a beautiful night in DC. We met new people, learned new facts about the area attractions. Its alot of walking but worth it! So, I would suggest to dress for comfort! They suggested that we bring a flashlight. I would suggest that in addition to the flashlight, you bring a map of downtown. Not sure why this is an 18 and over event. I think my teenage daughters would have really enjoyed it.
I would and will do this again!

This was a lot of fun and much more of a challenge than I thought! It is a great way to meet new people and see the city in a new light. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a flash light as it hard to read your clues by street light.
Quotes & Highlights
- Recommended by the Washington Post and Daily Candy.
BOO! Sorry to startle you, but you better get used to it if you’re joining this hunt. Armed with only a flashlight, you’ll visit ghost-plagued buildings around and near Lafayette Park while learning the stories of the restless souls you might disturb. Possible cameos by the spirits of Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Dolley Madison, Abigail Adams, Andrew Jackson, the (allegedly) suicidal Mrs. Henry Adams and losing duelist Stephen Decatur.
Teams are typically comprised of 4-6 people. If you arrive as a single, pair or trio, they will pair you up with others at the start of the hunt to form a larger team.
About the Ticket Supplier: Watson Adventures
Watson Adventures sprang from the mind of Bret Watson, a veteran writer and editor (and occasional stand-up comedian), who started creating scavenger hunts in the early '90s for friends as a way to share his unique take on the lighter side of museums. As word of the unusual scavenger hunts spread, companies began to ask Bret to let them get in the game, and a business was born.
Since then, Watson Adventures has grown to span the nation, with more than 200,000 people participating in hunts, including employees of more than 1,000 prestigious corporations. All the while, Watson Adventures' scavenger hunts have received more media raves and other acclaim than any other company of its kind. Below, you can learn more about the creative, clever crew who've made our success possible.
