About Newseum

The Newseum’s mission is to champion the five freedoms of the First Amendment through exhibits, public programs and education. Established and supported in part by the Freedom Forum, the Newseum is a 501(c)(3) public charity funded by generous individuals, corporations and foundations.

The Newseum’s dynamic, engaging and interactive museum allows visitors to experience the stories of yesterday and today through the eyes of the media while celebrating the freedoms guaranteed to all Americans by the First Amendment.

From the modern building located on historic Pennsylvania Avenue, to the state-of-the-art theaters, exhibits and hands-on activities located inside, a visit will quickly show why TripAdvisor users rated the Newseum as a “Traveler’s Choice Top 10 Museum in the U.S.”
