WASHINGTON - Newsflash: Kids can visit the Newseum for free this summer.
From July 1 through Labor Day (Sept. 3), visitors age 18 and younger can get in free with a paid adult admission, senior admission or a Newseum membership.
The offer extends to as many as six kids.
Though Washington is known for its free museums, youth tickets to Newseum are regularly $12.95. Admission for adults is $21.95. Both tickets are good for two consecutive days.
The "Summer Fun Deal," sponsored by WTOP, opens Sunday with a variety of events:
- Caricature artists and face painters
- A scavenger hunt with prizes
- Storytellers in the Knight TV studio
- The News Hound
The Newseum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased online or at the door.
