Davin Hutchins over at the American News Project did a recent video exposé on the brand spanking Newseum in Washington, DC. It’s pretty critical of this multi-million dollar facility that celebrates the 1st Amendment and calls itself the “World’s Most Interactive Museum”. I haven’t been to it yet, but I’ve heard from those who have that it is overwhelming, but not captivating. Even though it is heavily sponsored by big corporate Media companies, it has an admission fee of $20, which seems prohibitive when a museum like this should be open to all comers.
Check out the video over at American News Project site and feel free to offer us your comments if you have in fact visited the institution.
