Newseum is the Interactive Museum of News. There is a lot to check out here. You can read the headlines from over 200 newspapers for this morning in “Today’s Frontpages”. This site is a gem that you’re going to want to add to your favorites.
If you scroll along the pictures at the top you’ll notice that they are both clickable and that they roll over. These allow you to see things that are currently featured. Things you should check out: a very nifty section on Women Photographers of National Gepographic, not to mention the Pulitzer Prize Photographs that were simply stunning, or the sections on Iraq, the Holocaust, and the exhibit on the Berlin wall.
You can also check out “Cyber Newseum”, which is also full of nifty topics like:
The War in Iraq – “See how the world reacted to the U.S. missile strikes that launched the war in Iraq in this online exhibit featuring more than 200 national and international newspaper front pages from March 20, 2003.”
President Kennedy – “Learn how journalists covered the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in a new book from the Newseum.”
NewsMania – “Play NewsMania, the Newseum’s news trivia game that’s as fresh as today’s headlines, with your host, Rita Laboudit. The game is different each time you play. Show what you know and you may win a press pass!”
Running Toward Danger – “What was it like for the journalists who covered the September 11 terrorist attacks?”
Those are just my favorites, this section is large by itself let alone including the rest of this Museum.
I think you’ll really enjoy how seamlessly this site is brought together with different type of media, they even have different connection speed choices for those of us still on dial-up. Which is just fabulous for a media site.
