Calling all Junior Reporters!

Bring your youth or scout group to the Newseum to sniff out the big stories! Our fun-filled activity guide helps cub reporters learn how journalists report stories as they write, draw, discuss and explore their way through the galleries. Explore one of the largest displays of the Berlin Wall outside of Germany and investigate today’s headlines from all over the world! Your group will travel back in time and find out how the biggest news stories, from the sinking of the Titanic to the moon landing, were reported!
