The Newseum is offering a great opportunity for the public to enjoy its prime location on Inauguration Day, Monday, Jan. 21, 2013. As it is only museum with a direct view of the inaugural parade route in Washington, DC, the Newseum is offering a special event package for Inauguration Day that will include events such as a live feed of the swearing-in ceremony on a 40-by-22-foot high-definition screen, a welcome kit with commemorative merchandise and more. Visitors also will have full access to the Newseum's exhibits and theaters, including the exhibit "Every Four Years: Presidential Campaigns and the Press." Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

The Newseum will be accessible only to Inauguration Day Package holders on this day. Tickets will go on sale to Press Pass annual members at 9 a.m. Nov. 8, 2012, and to the general public beginning at 9 a.m. Nov. 15, 2012. Tickets are $100 and available at newseum.org. Children ages six and under will be allowed to enter at no charge. Packages are valid for Inauguration Day only, and are nonrefundable. The event is expected to sell out.

On Inauguration Day, the Newseum will be hosting most major television news networks along with radio broadcasters, print reporters and photographers from a wide array of organizations. The terraces will be transformed into temporary television studios in order to accommodate the multiple live broadcasts and will not be open to the public.
