Choose from Eleven Enrichment Excursions including:
The Library of Congress
Come visit the Library of Congress and take a tour of the historic Jefferson Building. Then, meet with education specialists for a hands-on workshop where you’ll learn how to access and use millions of freely available, digitized primary sources from the Library’s collections with your students. The Library of Congress will not be charging anything for this enrichment experience, and all digitized primary sources you wish to use later are also freely available! The tour cost is to cover transportation only.
The National Archives
Join us for a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the National Archives to explore the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and many other treasures the museum has to offer. The staff-led tour will begin on the private side of the building, where visitors will gain insight into the process of research, preservation and document storage at the Archives. This will include a look at National Archives research facilities and resources, as well as a tour of the stacks where documents are stored. From there, visitors will travel to the public side of the building to learn about the history of the Archives and see the Charters of Freedom housed in the Rotunda. Finally, visitors will see the 1297 Magna Carta and the featured documents in the Archives Public Vaults.
