Very fun to see the original documents from the founding of America. However, the line is quite long to get in and you don't have much time in front of the documents. They make you move along quite quickly and the documents are very faded. For me, it was worth it to wait in line and see them, but that would not be true for everyone especially depending on time restrictions.

If you have time I would go but if you have a tight schedule don't bother. There is not much here and they make so many replicas of the documents what is the point. No photos allowed.

While it's great to see the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, the lines here can be quite long. The amount of people roaming about is comparable to the rest of the museums on the Mall, but because there are so few items to look at it feels much more crowded and time-consuming. The building is beautiful, inside and out.
