Newseum Crawling

A map of the world showing how free a nation’s press is. Green is free, yellow is mostly free, and red is not free.

The Newseum is a fascinating interactive museum of journalism in DC. Since it’s not a Smithsonian though, it’s not free so you do have to buy tickets. However, if you are interested in news and how the media works, there are some really great exhibits such as the Pulitzer Price Photographs Gallery, the Berlin Wall Gallery, and a wall that is covered with the front pages of newspapers from across the country and around the world (it’s changed daily!). To learn more about the Newseum, visit their website here.

One of the many newspaper headlines covering the wall to the entrance of the 9/11 gallery. The tissue box is a permanent fixture for those who have just watched the heart-wrenching short film about that fateful day.
