Make some history or alchemy of your own! First, you’ll get inspired by walking through the exhibit "Archives Alchemy" with some of artists. Later you'll get creative by recycling reproductions of documents or graphics from past exhibits, microfilm and found objects. You’ll be using glue and small hand tools, so dress accordingly.

Consolidation of NARA's Philadelphia facilities

The Archivist of the United States announced the consolidation of the Philadelphia facilities into one, on Townsend Road, among other facility changes. These closures will have an impact on researchers, educators, and other stakeholders in Philadelphia, Anchorage, and Fort Worth. National Archives staff will be working out the implementation details, including the effects of the facility closures on existing programs, over the coming months. We will keep you informed as plans develop.

We encourage you to follow National Archives at Philadelphia on Facebook to keep up with breaking news. We recognize that these changes will be painful for our users, and we are committed to providing the best service possible to all National Archives stakeholders. Working together, we will be able to ensure that the public will continue to have access to these records.
