      About this Washington DC tour

      September 11, 2001. John F. Kennedy's Assassination. The Challenger disaster.

      There are some news stories that you remember for the rest of your life, no matter how old you or where you were when they happened.

      The Newseum is dedicated to helping you not just remember these stories, but understand their place in human history. From the very first newspapers to social media news apps, this modern museum touches on hidden elements of some of the most important events ever.

      There's more here than just the events. What did they mean? Who covered them? Did they accurately represent events as they happened? And what were the stakes of bringing this information to the world? Reporting the news can be a deadly business, a fact relayed in impressive visual form at the two-story glass Journalists Memorial. Each year, the wall is inscribed with the names of reporters and photographers who gave their lives to bring the world the stories that they need to know.

      From famous crime sprees to scientific breakthroughs to war and natural disaster, the Newseum covers lots of ground, literally: a quarter million square feet of experiences, memories, and artifacts from the stories that create our collective consciousness, along with printouts of every day's front pages from 70 international newspapers. In a world where things change so fast that it's hard to keep up, it's nice to have everything from the past 500 years in one place. 

      This just in:

      The Newseum doesn't just exist to preserve the past: The museum is updated every day with one of the most technologically sophisticated communications systems around. Over 100 miles of fiber optic cable allow theaters, signage, and interactive displays to be changed in mere seconds. In the New York Times Gallery, a 90-foot-high screen shows the latest headlines from around the globe.
