Save on admission costs with a special discount. For the month of September, the Newseum will offer an exclusive group rate to senior citizens. For groups of 10 or more, seniors age 65 and over will enter the Newseum for only $12 (plus tax).

Don’t miss this low-cost opportunity to visit D.C.’s most newsworthy museum! The Newseum’s seven levels of interactive exhibits explore the story of news, the role of a free press in major events in history and how the core freedoms of the First Amendment — religion, speech, press, assembly and petition — apply to their lives. From having a good laugh at “Seriously Funny: From the Desk of ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,’” to discovering Pulitzer Prize–winning photographs, there is something for everyone at the Newseum. Stay for a few hours or spend the whole day; either way, you can return the next day for free! All tickets are good for two consecutive days.
