It was actually one of the most interesting museums I've been in. Very interactive. Looking at the front pages of newspapers was so interesting. We could have spent the entire day. We even ate in their foodcourt by Wolfgang Puck. The food was wonderful and reasonably priced. They had a section of the Berlin Wall. Also since the FBI closed for tours after 9/11, there is a lot of their stuff in there, plus they had a section with the pulitzer prize winning photos. It was just awesome beyond words.
