Federal Employees Receive FREE Admission

The Newseum is not affected by the current government shutdown and will remain open with normal business hours. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Federal employees can receive FREE admission during the government shutdown by showing their badge in person at the admissions desk.

Now is the perfect time to come experience the Newseum. It’s your last chance to see two popular exhibits before they close later this month:

  1. How lovely that you are giving free admission to federal workers during the shutdown. It’s nice to see some good will out there during this difficult time!

  2. Hello,

    Is free admission avalaible for the wife of a person who’s a federal employe ?

    Thank You for answering to my question, we would like to come tomorrow at the Newseum 🙂

  3. Is the free admission just for the federal employee or is their immediate family included? Also, is this museum appropriate for a 10 and 7 year old?

    Thank you!

    • The offer does not apply to spouses or dependents.

      The Newseum is definitely appropriate for a 10 or 7 year old. However, exhibits and/or films that may be too intense for young children include a parental discretion advisory.

    • If the federal government is shut down again, the Newseum will likely resume offering free admission to federal employees, which includes furloughed contractors with federal identification.
