The National Archives preserves and protects some 28,000 plans of public buildings across the United States, as well as the design plans for the city of Washington.
Whether you live “inside the beltway” or you are a visitor coming to enjoy our nation’s capital, no one can deny that our capital, the seat of our government, is beautiful. D.C.’s national landmarks, memorials, and museums on the National Mall and throughout the city are filled with the history of our nation and who we are as a people. The National Archives Store offers the pop art inspired Capital Landmarks line of apparel, gifts, and home decor to proudly and colorfully celebrate some of our most famous national monuments and buildings in the nation’s capital. Purchases from the National Archives Store generate financial and creative support for National Archives exhibitions, public programs, and educational initiatives, introducing America’s records, to people around the U.S. and the world.
