WASHINGTON — The Newseum’s daily exhibit of newspaper front pages was a popular post-election attraction for tourists and international news organizations seeking more news about President-elect Barack Obama’s historic victory on November 4.

Every morning, more than 600 newspapers from every U.S. state and from countries around the world submit their front pages to the Newseum via the Internet to be part of the Today's Front Pages exhibit. Fifty-two of the front pages are displayed in cases in front of the Newseum on Pennsylvania Avenue. Eighty are displayed inside in the Today’s Front Pages Gallery on Level 6.

The full selection of front pages is available on newseum.org each day by 8:30 a.m. To see the Nov, 5, 2008, front pages from the United States and around the world, click here.
