Newseum Offers Warm Spot to Watch Parade
The Newseum, which reopened in its new location near the Capitol in April, will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Inauguration Day, the Associated Press reports. It should offer great views -- and warmth -- to visitors on Jan. 20.
Standard admission costs -- $20 for adults, $18 for seniors/military students, $13 for children 7-18, and free for those six and younger -- will apply. Click here for the Going Out Guide's comprehensive Newseum information.
More information from the AP story after the jump.
Several balconies inside the building have prime views of Pennsylvania Avenue. Outdoor balconies with views of the Capitol have been reserved by the TV networks.
The museum about news had planned to remain closed until 3 p.m. because of security restrictions. Bennett said the Secret Service has now agreed to allow the museum to open for the morning festivities. President-elect Barack Obama's swearing-in will be shown live on the Newseum's giant-screen television.
The Newseum already has sold 9,000 tickets for tours the day before on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
