Newseum Grand Opening

On April 11, 2008 the Newseum opened its doors officially to the public. To honor the event the Newseum hosted a block party on Pennsylvania Avenue that featured historical actors, live music, games, food and beverages. At 8:45 am the grand opening program began. Newseum CEO, Charles Overby, and DC Mayor, Adrian Fenty gave remarks. At 9:00 am an American bald eagle flew over to the entrance, then a giant grand opening screen was raised, and patriotic confetti rained on Pennslyvania Avenue. The Newseum is an interactive museum of news and journalism in Washington, D.C. The six-story, 250,000 square foot glass faced museum is located near the intersection of Constitution and Pennsylvania avenues, with a clear line of sight to the Capitol just a few blocks away.
