The Perfect Evening The most spectacular events deserve a dramatic venue. The Newseum, a 250,000-square-foot museum of news located in the heart of downtown Washington, D.C., is the consummate location for galas, fundraisers, corporate parties and extravaganzas. Guests will be swept away upon entering the Great Hall of News, a 90-foot-tall atrium space where a news chopper soars overhead and the Newseum’s world-class exhibit galleries are visible from every angle. The Great Hall of News can be configured especially for your event, whether it’s a understated cocktail party or an extravagant sit-down dinner. You can display your own photos, videos or logos on the Newseum’s signature 40-by-22-foot high-definition media screen for added impact and ambience. When renting the Newseum in its entirety, you and your guests will have access to all major galleries and interactive activities and stunning vistas of the city. History enthusiasts can stand in the shadow of the Berlin Wall or read historic front pages “The Newseum is a premium space in Washington. My clients love to host events in a building that is such an important part of the city.” — Sandi Hoffman, event planner, Washington, D.C. dating back to the 16th century. In the Interactive Newsroom, aspiring news anchors can step in front of the camera and record a breaking report about the festivities or play numerous news-themed games. On higher floors, panoramic glass windows showcase sweeping views of Pennsylvania Avenue, while the sixth-floor terrace features a picture-perfect Capitol backdrop. Additional amenities, such as custom lighting design, valet parking, audiovisual services, elegant linens and gift bags, can be arranged to suit your needs. And no gala at the Newseum is complete without the flawless service of Wolfgang Puck Catering, providing award-winning, restaurant-quality cuisine and creative flair to perfectly match the occasion. With an atmosphere that is firmly tied to the history, power and grandeur of Washington, the Newseum is more than an impressive setting for your finest gatherings — it is the top destination for memorable and unparalleled events in the nation’s capital. 7 For more details, contact the Newseum Events Department at 202/292-6100.
