Refresh your appreciation for free expression and the pursuit of truth with an immersive journey through Newseum. Trace the history of the news media across seven floors of touchscreens, film and video, computer games, interactive kiosks, and hands-on multimedia exhibits.

See the largest intact section of the Berlin Wall outside of Germany, with harrowing accounts of post-war Germany. Get the inside scoop on the FBI, with exhibits detailing their cooperation with the press in the Unabomber case, and how the intelligence world changed post-9/11.

Take the glass elevator to the 6th floor, and enjoy views of the Capitol Building from the Pennsylvania Avenue terrace. Read newspaper headlines from around the world and discover the history of the U.S. Constitution and 500 years of news history.

See the Civil Rights Movement and the student protest movement brought to life before your eyes. Stand solemnly at the 9/11 exhibit, featuring the communications antenna from the fallen World Trade Center, and salute journalists who have been killed in the line of duty.

Star as a reporter in your own TV broadcast, see how technology has transformed news media over the years, see every Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph, and so much more.
