The movie, National Treasure, is exceptional but this museum is the treasure! And after you see the documents the gallery is awesome! Super clean restroom and gift shop but don't even take your phone out - absolutely not!

From THE original documents to the special exhibits and education, The National Archives was absolutely my favorite in DC history. This is absolutely for all ages and one visit isn’t enough. Take your time browsing through as photos are not permitted.

There was confusion from other people we talked to that day, but the Declaration and Constitution are located here. Sadly you cannot take pictures in the building. The documents are worth the visit and the architecture is beautiful.

Stood in line for some time to get inside, then stood in another line to enter the "Rotunda" where the "big" documents are kept: Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. It meant a lot to me to see these documents, so it was all worth the wait. Definitely a bucket list item if you love America.

We were running out of time and had to choose one last stop. My granddaughter wanted to see the key documents housed at the archives. The crowd was big but not overwhelming. She was impressed to see the actual documents she has read some much about. It would be nice to have a bit more time. Also to protect the documents the room is dark.
