Newseum to hold Inauguration Day viewing event

With Election Day officially behind us, Washingtonians can set their sights on the next big political event: Inauguration Day.

The museum’s terraces will be closed to the public due to Secret Service security measures, but there will be a live feed of President Obama’s swearing-in ceremony.

And if the 2008 inauguration is any predictor, the $100 per person ticket price also guarantees a respite from the bitter cold of Washington in January.

The event will preclude all other general admission or group visits to the museum, so plan accordingly.

Inauguration Day tickets will go on sale to members at 9 a.m. on Thursday, and to the general public next week, on Nov. 15. They can be purchased online or in person at the Newseum.
