After nearly 11 years and 10 million visitors, our beloved "Newseum" is closing its doors.
In the press release on it's website it says: "In January 2019, we announced an agreement to sell the Newseum building on historic Pennsylvania Avenue to Johns Hopkins University, a premier academic institution, which will use the facility for its D.C.-based graduate programs.
The Freedom Forum, creator and primary funder of the Newseum, remains committed to continuing its mission to champion the five freedoms of the First Amendment and to increase public awareness about the importance of a free and fair press. These educational efforts are needed now more than ever and that critical work willcontinue online and through public programsin Washington, D.C., and around the country.
There is still time to visit! The Newseum is open through the end of the year and all of the artifacts and exhibits will remain on public display, including our newest exhibit, “Seriously Funny: From the Desk of ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." There is also afull calendarof public events and programs running through December.
