The Newseum continues to become a favorite must-do experience in Washington, DC and on the heels of a sold out 2015 season, Newseum Nights returns in 2016 with a new line-up of fun after-hours events. Each of this year’s three themed Newseum Nights events is a chance to get up close and personal with the Newseum’s most popular exhibits while enjoying open beer and wine bars, food, curator-led gallery talks, exclusive activities and much more.

The first party of the year on May 11 features their brand-new political exhibit, “CNN Politics Campaign 2016: Like, Share, Elect.” Partygoers will get an inside look at this innovative exhibit, which tells the story of the 2016 presidential campaign in real time through interactive digital and social experiences. Future parties will celebrate the Olympic spirit and free expression.

Tickets for “Newseum Nights: Like, Share, Elect” go on sale April 7 for Newseum members for $30, and April 14 for the general public for $40. Become a Newseum member through their Newseum Nights ticket sale and get a free ticket to the party – plus, skip the line with early member entrance!
