The Newseum’s engaging exhibits include the News History Gallery, which showcases nearly 400 historic newspaper front pages dating back from the 1500s and “Inside Today’s FBI,” which explores how crime and crime-fighting have evolved in the post-9/11 age. One of the museum’s most popular galleries, the Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery, features every Pulitzer Prize winner dating back to 1942, when the award was first presented.

It’s your last chance to take a look at the following exhibits:

  • “Pictures of the Year” 75 Years of the World’s Best Photography” features award-winning photographs that depict the people and events that have defined our times, capturing war and peace, disaster and triumph, and the social and cultural shifts that have shaped the past 75 years. Open through Monday, Jan. 21.
  • 1968: Civil Rights at 50” explores the events that marked 1968 as a year of anguish and anger for the civil rights movement: the assassinations of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, and a Black Power protest at the Olympics in Mexico City. Due to popular demand from our visitors, we’ve extended the exhibit until Jan. 27!
