Free Admissions on Presidents Day

Looking for something fun and frugal to do on Presidents Day?

Target has been sponsoring free days at museums around the country this year. Presidents Day is one of those days for some museums. Click here to find out where and when the Target Family Free Days are in your area.

Do a web search using the words "free admission on Presidents Day"+"your state/home town."

Here are some results:

New York City:

The New York Historical Society

The Metropolitan Museum of Art (free admission for family up to 5 in number Feb 12-21, 2010)

The Henry Ford Museum

Of course, most museums and libraries having to do with the US Presidents have free admission and programs on Presidents Day:
Nixon Library
Reagan Library
Clinton Library
Kennedy Museum

Please note that due to the huge snow storm in the Northeast, some activities may be canceled like the Alexanderia, Virginia celebrations. So, if you are in that area, check to make sure the event is still happening.

Apparently, the Northeast is going to hold all its Presidents Day events as snowball fights. Check your local blogs and friends in the know to see if there is one scheduled in your area. Meanwhile, check out the massive snowball fight in Washington, DC.

and then a few days later a rematch was arranged
