The National Archives
Welcome to the National Archives, the iconic building where NARA, National Archives and Records Administration, displays some of the nation's most important documents, such as the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights. In its totality, the National Archives holds permanent records created by the U.S. Congress, U.S. Supreme Court, Federal District Courts in the District of Columbia, and Select Federal Agencies.
There are several permanent and temporary exhibits available for guests to explore at any given time, the permanent ones you will see being Records of Rights and Public Vaults. Examples of temporary exhibits seen at the National Archives are the current Featured Document Display: Woodstock 1969 and Rightfully Hers: American Women and the Vote. There is also the O Brien galleries, Boeing Learning Center, William G McGowan Theater, and David M Rubenstein Galleries.
Your group can take a guided tour here, the tours offered once daily starting at 9:45 am. The tour will show you the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom, the Public Vaults, and the temporary exhibit gallery.
