Celebrate Freedom at the Newseum
Located between the White House and the Capitol, The Newseum is seven levels of wonder, with some of the most interactive exhibitions in the world. The 9/11, Berlin Wall and Pulitzer Prize Photographs Galleries are unforgettable, while the theme of the museum broadly covers the evolution of electronic communication and the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly and petition.

Theatre of the People in Howard
The line-up at the Howard Theatre is almost as rich as its history. The beautiful building originally catered to an African-American clientele, hosting may of the great black musical artists of the early and mid-20th century. Since reopening in 2006, the theatre has hosted a diverse lineup of well-known acts, including Alexander O’Neill, Brian McKnight, The Roots, Slick Rick, Drake and Kendrick Lamar. The regular Sunday brunches with the Harlem Gospel Choir are a must.
