Spaces and Places: The Newseum

16 Jul

This past Saturday, the kids and I headed to The Newseum, located at 555 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC to learn about the history of journalism.  Now you know this trip was more about me because I love to write and I love the news.  I remember being a little girl reading the paper every morning while I ate my cereal.  The comics section was my favorite, next to the local news. 

The staff at the Newseum were incredibly friendly when we checked in and the children, and myself were in awe of the cool news helicopter suspended in the ceiling.   Then Newseum is six floors of exhibits and includes a 4-D movie called “i-Witness”, which takes viewers through an interactive journey through history of journalism.  The cost of admission is around 22 dollars, and until September children are free.  Bonus: Your tickets are good for two days!

Next we headed to the Camelot exhibit that showcased photographs from JFK’s presidency.  The exhibit is sponsored by Nikon and features the photography of  Jaques Lowe.  A separate exhibit that documents his road to the white house is also on display.

The Newseum also had exhibits on the reporting of 9/11, the fall of the Berlin Wall,  Ethics in Journalism and my personal favorite, a replication of Tim Russerts office.
