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 Saturday, 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 unique Constitution-in-Action Learning Lab. In the Lab, students take on the roles of archivists and researchers completing a very important assignment: providing the President of the United States with real-life examples of our Constitution in action for a new public information campaign. Using primary sources at the National Archives, they search for historical examples of such political concepts as checks and balances and separation of powers, gaining a greater understanding of the important role the Constitution plays in both our government and our daily lives.

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