This Veterans Day, the Newseum once again will offer free admission to active and retired members of the United States military. On Tuesday, Nov. 11, members of the military and a guest are invited to visit the Newseum free of charge as the country pauses to reflect on their service.
Veterans will be able to experience “The Boomer List: Photographs by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders,” featuring portraits of 19 influential baby boomers and the stories of their generation. The exhibit is a nostalgic trip through the boomer era by way of artifacts, newspapers and magazines, and an interactive space where visitors can post their own thoughts and memories. Also on display for a limited time, “1964: Civil Rights at 50” explores the Freedom Summer movement through the photographs of Ted Polumbaum, who spent the summer of 1964 documenting volunteers working to promote voter registration in the segregated South. Popular ongoing Newseum attractions include the NBC News Interactive Newsroom, the Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery and the Berlin Wall Gallery.
To take advantage of this offer, service members should present military ID, another form of military service credential, or wear their uniforms. Tickets will be available only at the Newseum admission desk on Nov. 11, and cannot be used in conjunction with other discounts.
