Of all documents and materials created in the course of business conducted by the United States Federal government, only 1%-3% are so important for legal or historical reasons that they are kept by us forever.

The Newseum is something new to me and I didn’t know something like this existed or was being built. Well it is under construction in DC with a lot of cool things planned. When it opens some time this year, the Newseum — a 250,000-square-foot museum of news — will offer visitors an experience that blends five centuries of news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on exhibits. The Newseum will feature seven levels of galleries, theaters, retail spaces and visitor services. It will offer a unique environment that takes museum goers behind the scenes to experience how and why news is made.
