This great building and its collections are probably overlooked in the shadow of the Smithsonian with its 65 million artefacts, etc, but a few minutes inside will be sufficient. The front hall contains one of the original Declarations of Independence. Viewers stand in single file in the central rotunda and have a short time to view this particular document.

Address: 700 Constitution Avenue
Directions: Located between 7th and 9th Streets.
Phone: (202) 501-5404
