Wonderful yet haunting museum. So much history and perspective. It’s difficult not to get overwhelmed at times; definitely a focus on human suffering. Incredible variety of topics. Very well laid out. Easily spent two hours.

If you're the least bit interested in the history of news-making, freedom of speech, and freedom of press, then I'd recommend setting a whole day aside for this fantastic museum. I spent about 6 hours inside, and I had to rush myself and I wished...More
