Newseum Private Tours

Enhance your Newseum experience with a private guided tour for you, your family or your group. Our tour guides will personally guide you through the Newseum's many galleries providing behind-the-scenes information on some of the greatest news stories ever told. Seen through the lens of our First Amendment freedoms, it's the ultimate way to get up close and personal with the museum's Pulitzer Prize-winning photographs, the Berlin Wall, the Comcast 9/11 gallery and more.

Each visitor on the tour receives a keepsake "Newseum Private Tour" badge and, as available, guides will take the group to areas not included on the traditional tour path like our broadcast studios and master control room.

The tours are perfect for corporate groups, conference participants, retirement communities, church groups or even families looking for a unique way to add excitement to wedding, birthday, anniversary or other celebrations.

If your group has a special interest, let us know. We do all we can to make every tour memorable and one-of-a-kind.
