We awoke to thunder and rain. Not a great way to start the day, but the Newseum more than made up for the gloomy weather. The mission of this interactive museum is "to help the public and the news media understand one another better" and to "raise public awareness of the important role of a free press in a democratic society."

Wall of deceased photo journalists. Unfortunately there is plenty room to add more.
9/11 exhibit featuring mangled radio tower from the top of one of the buildings.
