  • Excellent location, close to the main sights of the city, allowing visits by walk. Spacious, well divided, all accessories, from bed linen to the perfect flatware, it is a "Residence". The unpleasant is to pay U $100 for the cleaning fee, and during my stay, I didn't have any employees doing this work, i.e., pay a fee just to get the apartment cleaned, and the maintenance?

  • Yes! Worth the price.... if you have time and are interested in history/journalism. Excellent for students studying or interest in news. Fun interactive 'green screen' be a reporter area. Great pic option on upper floor. Powerful exhibits on Berlin Wall, 911, and those who died reporting.
  • Pretty interesting. I really like how interestingly this museum is structured. You enter on the ground floor, take a glass elevator to the top, getting to see the unique construction of the building and its exhibits, and then you head downward through the various floors back toward the entrance. There are a lot of great displays that really drive home how valuable journalism has been in shaping the course of events throughout both American and global history. I knew a lot of the basic historical threads they were spotlighting, but the details that the museum delves into are quite fascinating. The collection of front pages from that day's news from around the country and the world is great to see as well. I went using some free tickets I'd received at another event, so that may have positively colored my overall experience. With a regular ticket price of $23, I'm not sure this would be one of my first choices on a visit to DC, especially given the wealth of free Smithsonian options right nearby.
  • What an amazing museum to showcase the history of journalism. Your ticket price includes a 2 day visit. You'll need it. I didn't get to cover the entire place in the 2 hours I had to spare and was unable to go back so I'll definitely be back. The view of Pennsylvania Ave is gorgeous.
  • Tickets bought later in the afternoon are valid for the next day! Handy if you've not been able to visit all the exhibitions. Some rather interesting exhibits exploring key points in American and world news reporting history.
  • Even though I work a block away, this was my first visit. I didn't get to see the museum, but was in the meeting area. Great facitlity, beautiful restrooms, and great staff. If you need a location to hold your event this place is great! Also you can get food catered from Wolf Gang Pucks resutrant.
