Win a Trip to Washington, DC for July 4 Festivities

The National Archives — Check it Out!

Washington, DC is blessed with so many interesting museums that the exhibitions and programs at the National Archives may not be on your radar.

We visited recently for a screening of the animated shorts that had been nominated for the Oscars, one of many free film events offered regularly.

The updated Archives Museum is an interactive display that brings the Archives to life.

Twice a year, the Archives invites 8-12 year olds to participate in a sleepover in the Archives Rotunda.  Pretty cool!
