This is a history museum, as told by the journalists who reported or photgraphed the events. Many of the displays dealt with events I remembered, and it made a big impression. Take your time, and take a break on the gallery on the top floor...More

You have to pay for admission. If it was free I would only recommend going for the basement cafeteria. After eating, leave for a museum about our national heritage or those who anonomously sacrificed their lives for the cause of liberty. Seven floors and 450...More
