Fodor's Review

In a town full of museum shops, this store at the National Archives Museum stands out, with exclusive memorabilia, reproductions, apparel, books, gifts, and plenty of Founding Fathers gear that let you own a piece of history. Authentic-looking copies of the Constitution and other historical documents are printed in Pennsylvania. The popular "red tape" paperweights are crafted in the U.S. with real red tape that once bound Government documents: hence the phrase "cut through the red tape." Other popular products feature Rosie the Riveter and presidential pets from Jackson's parrot Polly to the Obamas' dog, Bo. Throughout the store, interactive games associated with special exhibits provide entertainment and education into history—of the United States and even you. Enter your last name into the computer and see how many people in the U.S. share your name and in which states they live.
