The FBI has been a topic of interest within the media, both within pop culture and news outlets. Newseum now offers a collection revealing the occasionally tense and uneasy alliance between mainstream media and the mysterious crime-fighting government bureau. G-men and Journalists will also have a multitude of original objects which include newspaper clippings, photographs, and criminals' weapons.

Dedicated to free press and free speech, the Newseum showcases the history of news gathering. The displays include a video wall of live news broadcasts from around the world. Here visitors have the opportunity to anchor a news program, an exhibit especially popular with children. For a fee, children can also put their faces on the covers of famous magazines, including Life and Sports Illustrated. Interactive displays are the rule here, but there is much to see in a variety of dynamic formats. Washington visitors can also view an outdoor version of the Newseum's popular “Today's Front Pages” now on display. The museum also features the largest exhibit of Berlin Wall sections, and a gallery devoted to the horrendous events of September 11th.
