Inside the Ice Cube at the National Archives, the temperature is kept at a chilly 25°F in the freezer. Staff wear parkas and gloves to stay warm!
It is a stand-alone room, equipped with state-of-the-art scanners and barcodes. And it is just a bit cooler than the rest of the center, checking in at 35°F in the main room and 25°F in the freezer. We refer to the room as the “Ice Cube,” and the items stored in the room are assorted types of film.
