National Archives Museum Sleepover
Feb 1, 2020
National Archives Museum | Washington, DC (Map)
Unfamiliar with this destination? The National Archives Museum, the nation’s official record keeper, is home to the stories of the American journey. This nonpartisan institution has been safeguarding and providing public access to billions of records from all three branches of the United States government, including our country’s most important documents: the official Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights!
Even though the Archives was established in 1934, its major holdings date back to 1775. This includes important documents that tell our country’s stories, from slave ship manifests and the Emancipation Proclamation to Indian treaties making transitory promises. Guests can even see the Louisiana Purchase Treaty, bearing the bold signature of Bonaparte — a richly bound document doubled the territory of our young republic!
