The 4D movie is an entertaining way to kick off the experience, although it might be a bit scary for younger kids. Main galleries explore news history, electronic news, photojournalism, world news, and how the media have covered major historical events such as the fall of the Berlin Wall and the civil rights movement. The Interactive Newsroom and Ethics Center offer visitors a chance to play the role of a reporter, photographer, broadcaster, or editor. Touch-screen stations and blue-screen experiences provide the reporting tools and techniques needed to see what it takes to be a photojournalist behind the lens, or an anchor in front of the camera.
There is so much to do and see here - make sure to give yourself as much time as possible!
The Newseum is located at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Sixth Street, NW, between the US Capitol and the White House, and across the street from the National Gallery of Art.
