Q:
My questions are Are the staff (security guard /special police) of this place friendly to foreigners? Are foreigners not welcomed at this place? The reason I am asking these questions is because of the reviews here. I am planning a family trip to the National Archives Museum. We are from a foreign country where English is our second language. My family members and I read the reviews here. It seems foreigners were not treated well here. In one of the reviews, a foreigner did not violate any regulation, but one of the security guards threatened to toss this foreigner out of the museum. Another reviewer, we think he is a foreigner, or looks like a foreigner. The moment he entered the gift shop, a security guard yelled at him, "Do not touch anything if you not going to buy. If you not going to buy anything, you shouldn't be in here!" But he just got into the gift shop and did nothing, why all the yelling? In other reviews, similar to the previous two, security guard yelled at foreigners a lot. It seems that foreigners are presumed guilty of something. Should we skip this place? Or, if we decided to visit this place, what should we prepare? What should we do to please security guards here?

A:
I did not encounter anyone who was rude but I also am very respectful of the rules and as mentioned in others replies, these security people deal with thousands of people every day some of whom may be difficult. I would not let a few negative responses keep you from visiting. We travel all over the US and the world and there are some people who are friendly and there are some people who are not. I have found that if I treat staff with respect I am treated fairly.

Q:
What makes the Special Police so special here? Why many reviewers experienced rudeness and condescension of the special police officers at security checkpoint, rotunda, exhibitions, and the gift shop since 2009? Are most of the special police officers trained to treat museum visitors with rudeness and condescension? One of the reviewers mentioned military honor guards. Can you still see them at this facility?

I travel a great deal and it never ceases to amaze me how difficult tourists/visitors can be. My guess is that their demeanor is really needed to make sure that rules are followed. SO many people want to create their own rules. I have found that if you are pleasant, you will be treated fairly.
Q:
I didn’t print out my tickets
A:
No tickets needed. Just show up
