It seems as though whenever one goes to Washington DC , there’s a museum , monument , or memorial on every street corner.
One of these buildings is the National Archives Building .
This being our nation’s capital , you just know that it has an official sounding name.
The official name of the National Archives Building , (and a name that I’m sure NOBODY uses!) is the National Archives and Records Administration Building .
Once you walk into the building , you get the feeling that you’re at the airport , going through a ton of security .
Don’t even think about breaking out the camera phone or any other kind of camera in this building .
Hide them and use them for another monument , memorial , or museum in the city.
No picture taking is allowed here.
Just what is in this building that makes it so high security ?
Just the United States Bill of Rights , the Declaration of Independence , and the United States Constitution .
We aren’t talking about copies, either .
Also, if you want to find out more about those oh so colorful ancestors of yours that your relatives are always telling you about , you can look up their stories as well.
You can also look up information about those not so colorful ancestors as well.
Just have your information on hand when you go.
This information is free, just like a visit to the National Archives Building is.
Don’t worry about not being able to take pictures inside the building .
The outside of the building is very impressive and picture worthy.
Besides , this is Washington DC , you’ll have plenty of opportunities for picture taking.
