Museum Complex Dedicated to Journalism Opens in Washington


On Friday, 11 April, a major cultural and architectural event is set to take place in Washington: a massive new interactive museum complex dedicated to the profession of journalism will open its doors to the public. The "Newseum" was constructed with private funds at a cost of $450 million. Located in a prime location - about midway between the U. S. Capitol and the White House - its proximity to the center of American political power sends a powerful signal about the profound value Americans place on freedom of expression. For producer George Dwyer, VOA's Jim Bertel has more.
