The Newseum is not a free museum but you get a second day free. We actually did go two days as there was so much to see.
We watched a few films, one about some of the major news events in our history and the role the news plays in those events and another film on sports history.
There was an exhibition on the Berlin Wall including an actual section of the wall. Interesting was the colorful West Berlin side compared to the plain gray wall of the East side which seems to reflect the life the people on those two sides.
There were many exhibitions from newspapers in evolutionary times .to television, covering wars, women's rights history, civil rights and other major events.
I took the one below of a woman who looked like she was explaining to a young girl what the pictures were about.
Love Reagan's sweet looking King Charles and of course, BO and Sunny.
We ate in the cafeteria the first day we were there and then we read about the other restaurant that is right next to the Museum, the Source, created by Wolfgang Puck.However it was closed due to a private party. Well we did end up eating there another day but that is a story for a new post. We did walk around looking for somewhere interesting and decided on Oyamel, Cocina Mexicana. It really showcased the diversity of Mexico cuisine that was combined with a modern urban feel . Other than some specialties, they mostly had antojitos, which are like tapas or small plates. We first had guacamole that was made at the table.
