Storytime & CMA’s Inauguration Parade – 12:00 PM & 3:00 PM
Read along with the Imaginators as they share aloud Catherine Stier’s book, If I were President, a tale that depicts what different children imagine it would be like if they were President of the United States.

Special Relays and Games – 2:00 PM
On Presidents’ Day, the Imaginators are ready to play some perfectly presidential relay games! Identify the presidents found on U.S. currency while building the tallest money tower, or match our country’s presidents with the pets they cared for while living in the White House!
Science Bar – open 10:30 AM – 3:30 PM
Science is everywhere, but it’s especially on the mezzanine at the Children’s Museum of Atlanta! On Presidents’ Day at the Science Bar, guess what kinds of liquids will best clean a penny, engineer Lincoln’s log cabin, and learn how to count tree rings, just like those exposed when George Washington famously cut down a Cherry Tree! Staffed by a STEM educator with a whole menu full of fun activities and a whole head full of knowledge, the Science Bar is where questions turn into answers!
Art Studio – open 10:30 AM – 3:30 PM
The projects in the Art Studio connect and are inspired by the traveling exhibits in the museum as well as cultural holidays. Children discover colors and explore artists from around the world. On Presidents’ Day, children may make a tissue paper American flag or other Americana-themed crafts.
