As if the Library of Congress wasn’t enough to make me have major heart palpitations, I did some serious nerding out at the Newseum.
The seven-story news mecca has everything from the front pages of every major newspaper around the world to a super cool temporary exhibit about the FBI.
Some of my favorites included a display of all of the Pulitzer Prize winning photographs since the 1940s, and the museum’s “history of news” collection.
Since museum food isn’t known for being particularly well-priced or delicious, I stopped off at a tiny coffee shop called Peregrine Espresso for a large coffee and an even larger cinnamon roll before heading into the Newseum.
