What would you do if you were President? Come learn a kid-sized dose of American history and dream about what you would do if you were President. Would you make the country bird a peacock? Would the national song be sung by Yo Gabba Gabba? Plus all the regular, fun activities in the Museum – stop by the Imagination Studio to create a clay sculpture, get your exercise climbing the Museum’s mountain and more. Family fun all day at the museum for kids aged 3-10 and their care-givers.
