News + Museum = Newseum 

Recently opened in D.C. , the Newseum bills itself as the "interactive museum of news...where news comes to life." Sounds like a great place to visit the next time you're in D.C. But in the meantime, definitely check out its website. Every day it displays online copies of the front pages of over 600 daily newspapers from 58 countries. The archive carries front pages that chronicle recent events of historical significance--- for example, 9/11, and the tsunami. Want to relive the glorious day in 2004 when the Red Sox won the World Series? That's there too. Very cool. There are also links to the Freedom Forum, the Diversity Institute, and the First Amendment Center. A valuable and fun resource.
