Sadly, Newseum Set to Close

Sadly, Newseum Set to Close

Newseum Building 2 For those of us who love news and journalism, the announcement that the Newseum in Washington, D.C. will be closing was met here with great sadness. If you have not visited this wonderful institution, December 31 will be the last day to see it. Plan to spend the entire day there. It is truly an inspiring and emotional experience and well worth your time. No one can go there and not be moved by the major stories of our lifetime. This closure is one more disturbing announcement about the state of news and journalism. The Museum building, which is in eyesight of the Capitol, has been sold to Johns Hopkins University.
