Hold all those front pages thanks to the Newseum

Fantastic interactive maps on the Newseum site. Click on cities and towns across the world and you get the front page of that day's local newspaper... including the Lancashire Evening Post.

The US map is the most comprehensive but Newseum also has more than 800 front pages from 79 countries via interactive maps that include Europe, the Middle East, Asia, South America and Africa.

The UK is represented by just four papers - The Times, the Guardian, the Lancashire Evening Post and the pan-Arab paper Asharq Al-Wsat which is published inLondon.

The Newseum is based in Washington D.C. and is "a 250,000-square-foot museum of news" and described as "educational, inspirational and a whole lot of fun."

Can we have one over here, please?
