National Archives

While looking at papers may sound dull compared to Washington DC's exciting museums, the National Archives is one of the most popular attractions, housing priceless documents from US history, including the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, the Emancipation Proclamation, and even the 1297 version of the Magna Carta. All these documents are displayed to the public in the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom, along with other collections of photography and historical memorabilia.
