August tourist in Washington DC

4 posts in this topic

If you are going to visit Washington DC and take in the numismatic venues, you might also end up at the "Newseum" at 555 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., (a few blocks from the mall, Mint HQ, the Spy Museum, etc. If you go to Newseum, mention the name of a local radio station - WTOP-FM (a local all-news station) - and you will get 1/2 off admission. Good through end of August.

"Old news. "


Sorry....the announcement was for old collectors...


From a "TrickiWiki" on-line blurb:


The Newseum is an interactive museum of news and journalism located at 555 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C. The seven-level, 250,000 square foot museum features 15 theaters and 14 galleries. The Newseum's Berlin Wall Gallery includes the largest display of sections of the Berlin Wall outside of Germany. The Today's Front Pages Gallery presents daily front pages from more than 80 international newspapers. Other galleries present topics including news history, the September 11 attacks, the First Amendment, world press freedom and the history of the Internet, TV and radio.


(It's one of the most popular sites in DC, thus testifying to the ability of enlightened management and creative displays to make even "news" interesting to ordinary folks. ...Jab -- jab -- at numismatic show folks who rent out parking garages.)
