Artefacts from some of the worst terrorist attacks in US history are going on display for the first time in Washington.

A Toyota Corolla abandoned by the 9/11 hijackers at Washington Dulles International Airport is one of the items that visitors at the city's Newseum will be able to see.

The display is part of the renovated Inside Today's FBI exhibit at the Washington museum, which celebrates journalism and First Amendment freedoms.

The Newseum will also display the handcuffs used to restrain Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokar Tsarnaev and a mobile fingerprinting device used to identify his brother Tamerlan.

Officials said that the SUV used in a failed attempt to bomb Times Square in 2010, with the bomb components inside, will also be on display.
