1 Newseum
Newseum
555 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20001

Newseum. The Newseum opened to great fanfare in 2008, in a landmark $450 million glass-and-silver structure on Pennsylvania Avenue, set smack between the White House and the Capitol: a fitting location for a museum devoted to the First Amendment and the role of a free press in democracy. The museum has a serious purpose, but the space and exhibits are high-tech, multimedia, and sometimes shamelessly fun. Visitors enter into a 90-foot-high media-saturated atrium, overlooked by a giant breaking news screen and a news helicopter suspended overhead. From there, 14 galleries display 500 years of the history of news, including exhibits on the First Amendment; global news; the rise of multimedia; and the way radio, television, and the Internet transformed how we find out about the world. For some, though, the exhibits have a bitterly elegiac feel, documenting a profession that seems to teeter on the brink of collapse with thousands of layoffs and closures of newspapers and magazines in 2009.

Highlights

Live news programs are regularly filmed in the museum's central live news studio, and audiences are often welcome to watch.

The largest piece of the Berlin wall outside Germany, including a guard tower, is permanently installed in an exhibit explaining how a free press was a key contributor to the fall of the wall.

Five state-of-the art theaters, including an eye-popping "4-D" theater and another with a 90-foot-long screen, show features, news, sports, and documentaries throughout the day.

In the interactive games gallery you can create your own newscast or be a photographer in an action news event.

Tips

ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos is filmed live here every Sunday morning; museum visitors are welcome to watch.

Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck designed the menu for the food court, as well as for the well-reviewed restaurant The Source, adjoining the museum.

The best way to tour the museum is by viewing the orientation films on the ground floor, then taking the elevator up to the top floor and working your way down.

Tickets for the Newseum are date specific and subject to availability; purchasing them in advance on the Web site is recommended.

The top-floor terrace offers one of the best public views of the Capitol and looks directly down onto Pennsylvania Avenue.

The museum is best for children over 12. www.newseum.org. Admission: $20. Hours: Daily 9-5. Metro: Archives/Navy Memorial.

2 United States Navy Memorial
United States Navy Memorial
701 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, DC 20004

Although Pierre L'Enfant included a Navy Memorial in his plans for Washington, D.C., it wasn't until 1987 that one was built. The main attraction here is an 860-ton, 100-foot-in-diameter granite map of the world, known as the Granite Sea. It's surrounded by fountains, benches, and six ship masts. The Lone Sailor,

a 7-foot-tall statue, stands on the map in the Pacific Ocean between the United States and Japan. The Naval Heritage Center, next to the memorial in the Market Square East Building, displays videos and exhibits of uniforms, medals, and other aspects of Navy life. If you've served in the Navy, you can enter your record of service into the Navy Log here. The theater shows a rotating series of Navy-related movies throughout the day. Bronze relief panels on the Pennsylvania Avenue side of the memorial depict 26 scenes commemorating events in the nation's naval history and honoring naval communities. The panels are at a perfect height for children to look at and touch; challenge your child to find these items: a helicopter, a seagull, a U.S. flag, a sailor with binoculars, a dog, penguins, and seals. If you look carefully at the flagpole nearest the entrance to the Heritage Center, you'll see a time capsule, scheduled to be opened in 2093. www.navymemorial.org. Admission: Free. Hours: 24 hrs; Naval Heritage Center Daily 9:30-5. Metro: Archives/Navy Memorial.
