Newseum tour - More to Every Story
Overwhelmed or confused by all the news headlines? How to put all of the news into context?
See for yourself why the Newseum is called a “must-see” attraction in Washington, D.C, and widely considered to be one of the top 25 museums in U.S. Located between the White House and the U.S. Capitol, a visit to the Newseum is a conversation-inspiring experience you won’t find anywhere else. The Newseum promotes, explains and defends free expression and the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly and petition: http://www.newseum.org/visit/.
Come enjoy a guided "Highlight" tour of 60 minutes and an opportunity to get to know fellow club members!
A 15-minute 4-D film, “I-Witness: A 4-D Time Travel Adventure,” is also included in the admission ticket. “Some of the most dramatic events in journalism history are recreated in “I-Witness: A 4-D Time Travel Adventure,” where a 3-D film and fourth-dimension special effects take visitors on a journalistic trip through time.”
Please arrive at 11:15 am to get the admission and tour tickets. The guided tour will begin at 11:30 am. You are also welcome to see more exhibits after the tour.
