National Archives bans cameras in main hall

By Washington Post editors

Beginning in February, visitors will be prohibited from taking pictures of some the nation's most treasured documents housed in the main hall of the National Archives.

Federal Eye reports that the ban has been implemented because flashes from cameras have the potential to damage documents such as the Declaration of Independence or the U.S. Constitution.
