Boeing Learning Center

Back to Visit

The Boeing Learning Center is located on the upper floor of the National Archives Museum. Inside, visitors can explore many family-friendly activities for all ages.

In the activity space, there are hands-on projects that encourage historical discovery, document facsimiles from the holdings of the National Archives, and many online resources, as well as knowledgeable Archives staff and volunteers ready to answer any questions. The ReSource Room is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and reservations are not required.

The Boeing Learning Center also hosts a variety of workshops for students and teachers, including the Charters of Freedom Learning Lab.  During this program, students will learn about the history behind, and discover the purpose of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. They will build a graphic organizer to help them distinguish these “Charters of Freedom,” as they are known, by their purposes. Students will also tour the National Archives Rotunda to see the original documents in person and play a game where they will match document clues and excerpts to each document.

The Boeing Learning Center was made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the support of The Boeing Company.
