Free Admission Day: Presidents' Day (2020)

Monday, February 17 • 10:00am - 5:00pm

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 drawings and tassels. In our Research Library, we will have special objects on view. 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! Space per session is limited and registration is required. Register online or call (518) 463-4478 ext. 403
