Free Admission Day: Presidents' Day (2020)

Enjoy free admission to the museum today, courtesy M&T Bank!

This President’s Day, we’re celebrating books and literacy with some fun activities for the whole family. In the Art Studio, we’ll design our own bookmarks with collage art and tassels. Our Research Library will host How Albany Learned to Read, a pop-up display featuring children’s books and reading primers from 1800-1935. Plus, our friends from the RED Bookshelf will be on hand to give all children in the area the opportunity to own their own books and become readers, and Albany Public Library will lead a fun story time (great for ages 2-5) too!

We are also hosting Clifford the Big Red Dog birthday parties throughout the day. WMHT will be at the museum for a special screening of a birthday episode and we will make crafts and even get a chance to take pictures with Clifford! (Attendees are asked to bring their cameras.) Space per session is limited and registration is required. Open to families with children in Pre-K through 3rd Grade. Register online or call (518) 463-4478 ext. 403
