National Archives Museum (Washington, DC)

One of the most important places to visit on any trip to Washington, DC is the National Archives Museum.  Nothing compares to seeing the actual Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights up close.  It is amazing to think of the men who signed these very documents and the revolution that they were starting and the government that they were creating.  They had no idea how it would turn out, and I think they would be impressed that over 200 years later, these documents are still revered and venerated. Read my new review on why you should take your kids to this important museum while visiting Washington, DC.
