“Creating Camelot” at the Newseum

The Newseum has an exhibit of photographs by Jacques Lowe, the Kennedys’ personal photographer. The photo above, of the couple on a break during campaigning, was one of my favorites. They seem like a normal couple; at that point, they probably were. I think this was before they were famous.

The entrance to the exhibit:

On the same floor as the exhibit is an observation deck that provides a view of the capitol:

“Creating Camelot” is on view through January 7, 2018. Admission is $25 per person, which seems pricey given that there are so many free museums in DC, but you can return the next day for free.
