Indy offers many fun and free opportunities for Presidents Day. If you have the day off from work or school, take advantage of this special occasion to learn about our presidents or to simply create memories!
Special Free Admission
Enjoy free admission to the world’s greatest museum for kids, right in our backyard! The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis will be open this Presidents Day from 10-5. Also free from 10-5 is Conner Prairie, where you can talk with several presidents and first ladies, sing, play games, and participate in a surprise birthday party for George Washington!
The Indiana State Library would be a fun and educational outing, open 8-4:30. Spend some time in the interactive reading room, learn about genealogies (maybe see if you can trace any relationships to past presidents!), or visit the Statehouse Education Center to learn about history and government. You can even call ahead to request a tour! Want more history? Take some time to explore the Indiana State Police Museum, 9-3, to learn more about the past of some of the brave men and women who work to keep our city safe.
If shopping and food are more your thing, take some time to browse the Indianapolis City Market from 7am-9pm. Explore various foods and products from more than 25 local small businesses. Something for everyone!
