Deal: Free speech, free tickets for kids at Washington's Newseum

Kids get in free this summer at the Newseum in Washington with one adult or senior paid admission.

What better time to engage children in discussions about free speech and the 1st Amendment? The Newseum in Washington is dedicated to the topic and all things news-centric.

It offers a good deal for families this summer too: Up to four children get in to the Newseum for free when you buy at least one adult ticket.

The deal: The Summer Fun Deal offers serious savings on tickets for children 7 to 18 years old, which usually cost $13.95 each.

The deal allows free admission of up to four children with the purchase of one general adult (19 to 64 years old) ticket that costs $22.95 or a senior (at least 65 years old) ticket that costs $18.95. Children 6 and younger always get in free.

Newseum tickets are valid for two consecutive days too.

When: The deal is available July 1-Sept. 7. Tickets are on sale now online or you can buy them at the museum.

Details: Upcoming exhibitions not to miss:

-- "President Lincoln Is Dead: The New York Herald Reports the Assassination" about the initial media reports on his death almost 150 years ago.

-- "Reporting Vietnam," which includes more than 100 photos and TV footage of the war and the social unrest that unfolded in the 1960s and '70s.
