The Newseum is an interactive museum that promotes free expression and the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, while tracing the evolution of communication. The seven-level, 250,000-square-foot (23,000 m2) museum is located in Washington, D.C. and features fifteen theaters and fifteen galleries. Its Berlin Wall Gallery includes the largest display of sections of the wall outside Germany. The Today's Front Pages Gallery presents daily front pages from more than 80 international newspapers. Other galleries present topics including the First Amendment, world press freedom, news history, the September 11 attacks, and the history of the Internet, TV, and radio. It opened at its first location in Rosslyn, Virginia, on April 18, 1997, and on April 11, 2008, it opened in its current location. It is a popular destination, attracting more than 815,000 visitors a year, and its television studios hosts news broadcasts. The adult admission fee in 2017 was $26.38. Despite such high admission fees, it has seen years of financial losses. In February 2018, these losses led to an exploration of selling its building or moving to another location.
