About the Newseum
Open Daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sundays)
The Newseum, on Pennsylvania Avenue, promotes, explains and defends the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition. The Newseum’s seven levels of interactive exhibits include 15 galleries and 15 theaters. Among the most memorable exhibits are the 9/11 Gallery sponsored by Comcast featuring the broadcast antennae from the top of the World Trade Center, the Berlin Wall Gallery whose eight concrete sections are one of the largest pieces of the original wall outside Germany, and the Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery which features every winning photograph dating back to 1942.
