If you’re lucky enough to have the day off you may want to take the opportunity to check out some of our local museums that you’ve always been meaning to get to. Here are two welcoming guests with a special free day of admission for President’s Day. They’re especially great options if you’re looking for something to do with kids.
NATIONAL MUSEUM OF AMERICAN JEWISH HISTORY: Family-friendly interactive tours, arts and crafts activities and story times make up NMAJH’s day of celebrations. A rarely seen original letter written by George Washington to the Jewish Community of Newport, R.I., will also be pulled out of storage to be put on display especially for President’s Day. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., free, National Museum of American Jewish History, 101 S. Independence Mall East, nmajh.org.
NATIONAL CONSTITUTION CENTER: Besides its regular exhibition, NCC is hosting a day of tours, activities and reenactments that teach about the role of commander-in-chief. There will be Presidential tours of the main exhibition, a trivia game show and actors dressed as some of the most popular presidents will be milling about answering questions and posing for photos. This is a great option for kids. 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., National Constitution Center, 525 Arch St., constitutioncenter.org.
