Newseum closes

Patrons visit the Newseum in Washington, DC, on Thursday, December 26, 2019, during its last week of operations. According to its website, the Newseum, dedicated to news gathering and the First Amendment, will close at the end of the year and place many of their artifacts in storage because “remaining in the current location has proved to be financially unsustainable.”
