The ReSource Room in the Boeing Learning Center
Drop in during your museum visit to participate in hands-on activities and programs based on documents, images, maps, posters and more.
We're open Monday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Seasonal hours may vary. Reservations are not required. For school groups, we ask that you rotate through in small groups of 10 students at a time, with at least one chaperone per group.
Check for special activities and programs on our events calendar.
The Learning Lab in the Boeing Learning Center
We are not currently accepting reservations for the learning lab programs as we make some exciting updates. Registration for the new learning labs will reopen in January 2020.
Questions? Interested in piloting the new program in November or December? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also access our self-serve online Constitution Workshop.
The Boeing Learning Center was made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation.
