No. Although your ticket says 9 a.m., you may arrive anytime during our operating hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Activities will take place throughout the day. Check the schedule for listings.
No, you may come and go at your choosing. Activities tend to be more crowded in the morning.
No, troops are not required to wear their uniforms but it is encouraged.
No, anyone in the group can buy a ticket with this pricing. That includes troop leaders, parents, siblings, etc. You can purchase online tickets in the March 2 event listing on Newseum.org.
No, the special $11 Girl Scout Day rate is also available at the door. However, we strongly encourage you to buy them in advance so you can get the free commemorative patch and help us have enough supplies for everybody.
No, but if you cannot make it to the event on Saturday, the ticket is good for the next day (March 3).
Children 6 and under get in free. However, they still need a ticket which can be picked up at the admissions desk.
If you purchase tickets online by Feb. 11 you will receive a free commemorative patch that day from the Girl Scouts council. One patch per ticket. (Daisy scouts age 6 and younger get in free on March 2; however, they still need to pick up a free ticket at the admissions desk that day. Adults in their group who purchased a ticket by Feb. 11 can pick up patches for the Daisy scouts at the same time they pick up the free tickets for them at the admission desk.)
Adults in your group still need to purchase tickets. If they do it before Feb. 11, they should take that ticket to the admissions desk on March 2 to pick up patches for their Daisy scouts. (You do not register or note the number of Daisy scouts on the online order form.) Adults have to go to the admissions desk anyway on March 2 to pick up the free tickets for their younger scouts. Everyone requires a ticket for admission. As noted above, children 6 and under are free but still need a ticket from the admissions desk to be scanned.
The Girl Scouts will have forms to order patches at the Newseum on March 2, but numbers may be limited. We recommend ordering your tickets by Feb. 11 to ensure you get the patch.
No, your admission ticket is good for two consecutive days! You may return to the Newseum on Sunday, March 3, but there will be no Girl Scout Day activities that day.
The Newseum offers parking inside our building at 555 Pennsylvania Ave NW for a flat rate of $15 on Saturday. Entrance to the Newseum parking garage is on C Street.
