What's New Insider Tips Maps

Newseum

The Newseum is one of the Washington area’s newest attractions. Free of charge, the Newseum offers interactive exhibits in the field of broadcasting and journalism.

Located in Arlington, the Newseum is the only museum dedicated to journalism. Open since April of 1997, The Newseum has interactive displays where visitors can try their hand at being a TV anchor, sports announcer, investigative reporter or other jobs in the field of broadcasting and reporting.

Exhibits demonstrate how the elements of a story are put together and give a behind the scenes perspective on the news. Perhaps the biggest scoop ever, Columbus’s letter to Queen Isabella about his discovery of the New World is on display.

Also inside the Newseum is a news Gallery where visitors can catch the news hot off the press. Radio broadcasts from around the world can be heard, as well as a display of the headlines of  70 newspapers.

Next to the Newseum is Freedom Park, where a memorial is dedicated to 934 reporters who died on assignment.
