The National Archives Building in Washington, DC, opened in 1935 and is now in the midst of a major renovation. The Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom, which displays the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, reopened in September 2003. In addition to improving the building systems, security, and accessibility, the renovation has allowed the National Archives to greatly expand the opportunities for visitors to explore and learn about the records in our care. This new visitor opportunity is called the National Archives Experience.
