11-years after opening, the "Newseum" in the nation's capital will close today.

The museum, which is all about the free press, has seen almost 10 million visitors pass through.

But it's now closing due to high operating costs.

The building was sold to Johns Hopkins University last January.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma Lieutenant Governor Matt Pinnell posted a tweet, saying he wants the "Newseum" to move to the sooner state.
