Dec. 31 will be -30- for The Newseum

After more than 11 years and nearly 10 million visitors, the Newseum will close on Dec. 31.

The Washington, DC monument to the news industry has struggled financially for a number of years and says continued operations at its current location are unsustainable.

In January 2019, it announced an agreement to sell the Newseum building on historic Pennsylvania Avenue to Johns Hopkins University, which will use the building for its D.C.-based graduate programs. The Newseum is at 555 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington, DC.
