Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C

Pres. Gerald Ford with Liberty in Oval Office (David Hume Kennerly)

"First Dogs" is one of several exhibits and programs tied to the 2008 election and 2009 inauguration. The Newseum’s display of Nov. 5 newspaper front pages from around the world drew thousands of visitors and international media attention. More than 700 election front pages are accessible via the "Today’s Front Pages" section of newseum.org. A commemorative poster featuring more than two dozen of the election front pages is available in the Newseum Store.

In the News Corporation News History Gallery, visitors can see other historic election and inauguration headlines and front pages including:

·        RECOUNT, St. Petersburg (Florida) Times, Nov. 8, 2000

·        PRESIDENT ELECT KENNEDY, The Boston Globe, Nov. 5, 1960

·        DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN, Chicago Daily Tribune, Nov. 3, 1948

·        ROOSEVELT PROMISES SWIFT ACTION TO MEET NATIONAL CRISIS, Washington Times (Inauguration Day issue), March 4, 1933

Dozens of additional election front pages are featured in the searchable, digital displays of more than one thousand historic front pages in the gallery. In the Robert H. and Clarice Smith Big Screen Theater, visitors can see "Starting Anew: Inaugural Speeches," an original Newseum production that features highlights from past inauguration day speeches.

The Newseum will be open with special post-inaugural afternoon hours on Tuesday, Jan. 20. The Newseum will open at 3 p.m. and remain open until 10 p.m. Visitors will be able to enjoy highlights from media coverage of the inauguration and parade on the 40-foot-by-22-foot high-definition media screen, participate in inauguration-themed "Be a TV Reporter" interactive stations; and view hundreds of inauguration day newspaper front pages from around the world.
