All the memories, memorials, memorabilia

Newseum, the revamped 250,000-square foot light-filled monument to five centuries of journalistic self-glorification, opens in Washington DC this Friday, and Howard Kurtz of The Washington Post bungs in the glory of the story above the fold, calling it “dazzling, innovative and absorbing” but overpriced.

Three times the size of the earlier Newseum, the museum’s six floors packs papers, photos, videos, films, tablets, artefacts, exhibits, of the (chiefly American) heroes, villains and oddballs who made the news business.
