Newseum Permanent Exhibits:
The New York Times--Ochs-Sulzberger Family Great Hall of News
Around, above and below, visitors to the Great Hall of News are surrounded by a continuous flow of news. Instant, breaking, historic news that is uncensored, diverse and free.

The Story of News
This gallery tells the timeless story of news, of many voices struggling to be heard, and of the people and machines that spread that news.

NBC News Interactive Newsroom
News breaks, and a deadline is looming. Can you prepare a complete, timely and accurate report? The Interactive Newsroom gives visitors a chance to play the role of a reporter or photographer.

9/11 Gallery Sponsored by Comcast
This gallery explores the horrendous events of Sept. 11, 2001, and the extraordinary challenges that faced the journalists trying to report the news to a shaken nation and world.

Bloomberg Internet, TV and Radio Gallery
As technologies improved, the speed of news increased. First there was radio, carrying the sound of news simultaneously to thousands of listeners over long distances. Television and the Internet added impact.

Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery
This gallery features the most comprehensive collection of Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs ever assembled as well as interviews with many of the photographers.

Berlin Wall Gallery
The Berlin Wall was strong enough to stop a tank, but it couldn't stop news from getting into East Germany by word of mouth, smuggled messages or radio and television.

Cox Enterprises First Amendment Gallery
On Dec. 15, 1791, the first 45 words of the Bill of Rights established the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. For the first time in history, a constitution guaranteed its people five fundamental freedoms.

Time Warner World News Gallery
Every day, journalists around the world face intimidation, censorship and perilous conditions. Journalists have been harassed, attacked and imprisoned simply for asking a question or reporting facts.

Pulliam Family Great Books Gallery
Freedom has always been the key to open, enlightened societies. The books and documents in this display are some of the cornerstones of freedom.

Today's Front Pages Gallery
More than 700 newspapers transmit their front pages electronically to the Newseum every day. Up to 80 are enlarged and printed for display in this gallery — among them one from every state and the District of Columbia as well as a sampling of international newspapers.

Journalists Memorial Gallery
Journalists throughout the world face peril every day. Hundreds have died covering wars or other dangerous assignments, and many others have been targeted for murder in retaliation for their reporting.

ABC News Changing Exhibits Gallery
In this gallery the Newseum mounts exhibits that explore compelling topics and issues in more depth. Here are fresh takes on important news events, news-related anniversaries and emerging media trends.

America’s Main Street
This terrace offers a panoramic view of one of the most famous streets in the United States. The exhibit rail tells the rich history of the events that played a role in shaping Pennsylvania Avenue, the site of presidential parades and funeral processions, joyful celebrations and raucous demonstrations.

Ethical Dilemmas in Journalism
In the Ethics Center, interactive kiosks allow you to tackle real-life reporting dilemmas and see how journalists and other visitors responded. Or, you can challenge your friends to a fast-paced game on media ethics.

A 3-D Social Network
The HP New Media Gallery blends the latest in digital technology with the Newseum's critically acclaimed multimedia expertise to place visitors at the center of the news revolution. Five groundbreaking interactives and two video presentations illustrate the evolution and progression of global media.
