TheCrimeHouse on Vacation: Newseum

I had wanted to visit the Newseum for a long time, and on our trip to Washington D.C. in April we finally went. We spent several hours there and that was still not enough time to see all the exhibits. Some of the highlights included the Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery, First Dogs: American Presidents and Their Pets, 9/11 Gallery, Berlin Wall Gallery, and (of course) the FBI Exhibit.

The FBI Exhibit

The FBI Exhibit: G-Men and Journalists has more than 200 artifacts — including the Unabomber’s cabin, Patty Hearst’s coat and gun, and engine parts and landing gear from the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center — nearly 300 photographs, dozens of historic newspapers and interactive displays.

There are so many great museums in Washington, D.C. and Newseum is definitely one of them! If you are in the area and have a few hours (or more) to spare I really recommend a visit.
