We loved all the historic documents. As a history minor, I had a lot of information to give to the grandkids.

Not only is it awe inspiring to see the founding documents, but WOW all if the staff were so friendly and helpful!

Rowland, from the Housekeeping crew, was very helpful with giving directions outside and was very personable with humor. That always makes a visit special. The collections are impacting and fun to see!

We came to the Museum with our 88 yo mother who was in a wheelchair and one of the security guards/supervisors literally took us through the museum showing us special things that we would not have been able to see if we had been left to our own devices. He was spectacular and my mother just loved him (and wanted to take him home with us). Besides the fact that this museum holds the foundation of our country in it's glass showcases....it holds some of the friendliest security people you'll ever meet. One of the best parts of our trip.

What can one say when you are looking at one of four surviving copies of the Magna Carta? The Declaration, The Bill of Rights and more! The theme throughout the Archives is a celebration of mankind's struggle to break the shackles of oppression! An absolute must see!!

I probably could have spent a full week just in this building! Super cool for the history nerd in me. Even my kids loved it.
