Can’t wait for the ‘Newseum’

Artits's interpretation of the insides of the Newseum I’m really excited about the opening of the new news museum dubbed the "Newseum" in Washington, DC in October of this year. It looks to be a top-notch museum and will focus on issues in news-making, which happens to be both my passion and my career.

Here is a brief description:

The Newseum is located at the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and Sixth Street, N.W., Washington, D.C., between the White House and the U.S. Capitol and adjacent to the Smithsonian museums on the National Mall. The 250,000squarefoot Newseum will feature seven levels of galleries and theaters that will take museum-goers behind the scenes to experience how and why news is made, and will offer them an experience that blends five centuries of news history with uptothesecond technology and handson exhibits.

Among the exhibits featured in the museum will be an interactive newsroom, a great hall of news, "Today’s front pages," and a journalists’ memorial. How cool is that? I’m literally counting the days until it opens. This city gets more and more exciting by the day. I really can’t wait for this phenomenal museum to open its doors to all the news junkies out there.

    The Newseum is cool, even if you’re not a news junkie. This museum used to be in Rosslyn, but it closed a few years ago in preparation for the move to DC. It had a lot of great exhibits, but far too little space. I’m looking forward to seeing the new one!

    I remember going to the Newseum several years ago when it was in Rosslyn. There was a section where you had the opportunity to be a news anchor and get yourself taped and see what it looks like. I’m sure the new one will be bigger and better.
