Girl Scout Day at the Newseum


Calendar > Scout Events & Opportunities > In Partnership with Scouting Events & Activities in NOVA


A date for Girl Scout Day at the Newseum has been announced: March 4, 2017! Join the Newseum, a museum dedicated to promoting, explaining, and defending free expression and the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition, for a day, designed just for Scouts!

Tickets are $11 per person and Scouts under the age of 6 are free. If you purchase tickets by February 10, 2017, guests will receive a commemorative patch at the event. The day’s details are still being planned, but we’ll update them here as soon as they are released. For a look at what was offered in 2016, click here.

Seven levels of interactive exhibits and galleries, including 15 theaters, are devoted to bringing visitors the history of news and journalism. Little ones will love checking out exhibits such as the “First Dogs: American Presidents and Their Pets” or visiting the NBC News Interactive Newsroom for a chance to play the role of a newscaster! Plus, visitors can also save their tickets and visit on the following day for free, making exploring all 250,000-square feet of artifacts and news coverage, even more, enjoyable!

Another newsworthy deal? With the Newseum’s Summer Fun program, July 1 through Labor Day, kids get into the Newseum free with a paying adult! Up to four kids visit for free with each paid adult admission, senior admission, or Press Pass membership. 2017 program details will be announced soon.

The Newseum is located at 555 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20001. Connect: Online | Facebook | Twitter (202) 292-6100.
