Have you heard the great news? The Newseum, along with sponsor WTOP, is bringing back the Summer Fun Deal! From July 1 – September 3, there will be no admission fee for kids ages 18 and under. The promotion waives the $12.95 regular entrance charge for youth with one paid adult admission, senior admission, or Newseum membership. Up to six kids can enter free with the offer.
Not only is this a fun, interesting, and educational way to beat the summer heat, it’s also a great opportunity to explore a museum you may have put off visiting with the kids because of the entrance fee (we’re so spoiled by all of DC freebies).
And to kick off the Summer Fun Deal, the Newseum is hosting a celebration on the first day, July 1! Along with free admission and access to all of the exhibits, guests can enjoy the work of caricature artists and face painters, meet the News Hound, hear storytellers in the Knight TV Studio, touch original artifacts at “Collection Connection”, and participate in a scavenger hunt and win prizes.
The Newseum is open 9am – 5pm daily. Regular admission is $21.95/adults, $17.95/seniors, $12.95 youth 7-12, free for ages 6 and under. Go here for Metro and driving directions.
