Washington DC is a city with a large political history, and paper, radio, and video based news media have been along for the entire journey. The Newseum brings America's news and journalism to life through a variety of exhibits. In these exhibits, visitors can read articles featuring the most impactful US and world events, learn about the history of news media, see the current day's front pages from around the country and world, and see Pulitzer Prize winning photographs. Exhibits on the 9/11 terrorist attack, the Berlin Wall, and FBI agents shows how media represented and effected historic events.

The museum is located on Pennsylvania Ave., and includes a sixth level terrace with a breathtaking view of the US Capitol Building and Washington Monument. The Archives Station (Green Line and Yellow Line) is located just a block away, and Judiciary Square Station (Red Line) is about two blocks.
