The Newseum is not affected by the current government shutdown and will remain open with normal business hours. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Federal employees can receive FREE admission during the government shutdown by showing their badge in person at the admissions desk.
Now is the perfect time to come experience the Newseum. It’s your last chance to see two popular exhibits before they close later this month:
- “Pictures of the Year: 75 Years of the World’s Best Photography” features award-winning photographs that depict the people and events that have shaped the last 75 years. Open through Monday, Jan. 21.
- “1968: Civil Rights at 50” explores the events that marked 1968 as a year of anguish and anger for the civil rights movement. Open through Sunday, Jan. 27.
