If Newseum building was a bit smaller, it would explode on Friday! More than THREE THOUSAND people thronged in for a Holiday party which, no word is too big to express it, was HUGE success and went on even later than it was planned (who would want to leave such fabulous party, considering a whole weekend ahead with no alarm clocks!) The event was brought as a partnership of Newseum and BYT. Seems like after-hours museum parties become a beautiful tradition and bring lots of excitement into the public. There are some people who are strictly nightlife fellas and have no chance to see museum expositions since they are only open at daytime. That kind of events broad up the access and take whole museum visiting to a new level.
Just for $15 ticket you could get:
* Exclusive after-hours access to the Newseum — a dazzling, high-tech roller-coaster ride through 500 years of headline history including Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalism, the Berlin Wall and exciting galleries, theaters and interactives
* Autorock DJ
* Cash bar with specialty cocktails and holiday treats available for purchase
* An unveiling of a very special photo installation by BYT photographers featuring some of our favorite D.C. faces and characters of 2010
* SILENT DISCO ROOM ON THE 6th Floor featuring SMUDGE
* Christmas At Ground Zero – A book talk from Tad Daley, author of Apocalypse Never: Forging the Path to a Nuclear Weapon-Free World.
* Exciting films, merriment, mistletoe and more!
* And most importantly, full access to the following Newseum exhibits:
* Berlin Wall Gallery
* Athlete: The Sports Illustrated Photography of Walter Iooss
* G-Men & Journalists: Top News Stories of the FBI’s First Century
* Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery
* Interactive Newsroom and Ethics Center
Enjoy the pictures.
