Visting The Newseum

We're finishing up a visit to the new (for us) Newseum. I have to say,
I'm quite impressed. I feel like we really haven't seen the majority of
the museum, but what we have seen has been remarkable.

The Berlin Wall and FBI exhibits definitely exceeded expectations. The
Pulitzer Prize winning photos were worth the cost of admission alone,
and I look forward to going back and spending more time with them.
Imagine a whole conflict, movement or event all summed up in one frame.
Sounds impossible, yet these photos do this.

Even the potentially cheesy 4D movie was both entertaining and
educational. The only thing we did which I would have passed on was the
"studio tour." This turned out to be a basic look around their working
studio, and didn't really provide any real depth.

The Newseum is definitely a site you want to add to your itinerary. Our
AAA guidebook didn't give it a star, but I do.
