As global events turn our heads toward world news The Newseum comes to mind. Located in our nation's capitol right on Pennsylvania Avenue, this is not the traditional museum.  It's an interactive, 7-level, 250,000 square foot museum of news and journalism with 15 theaters and 14 galleries. The Newseum's Berlin Wall Gallery includes the largest display of sections of the Berlin Wall outside of Germany.  Other galleries provide news history -- the 9-11 attacks, the history of the Internet, TV and radio.

Its mission is "to help the public and the news media understand one another better" and to "raise public awareness of the important role of a free press in a democratic society".  The Newseum's operations are funded by the Freedom Forum, a nonpartisan foundation dedicated to "free press, free speech and free spirit for all people".  Here you can view over 800 newspaper front pages anytime you wish.  Thanks to Newseum and the Internet.
