Presidents’ Day is a family friendly event on February 16 from 12:00-4:00. All activities will be free and open to the public. In anticipation of the Museum’s upcoming Cruisin’ with Lincoln on 66 Visitors Center, come celebrate our nation’s founding fathers by taking a trip down the Mother Road! Did you know the official starting point of Route 66 is Chicago, IL—the former home of current president Barack Obama? Or that the development of the U.S. interstate highway system in 1956 was championed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower—the political opponent of Bloomington native and Democratic presidential nominee Adlai E. Stevenson II? Find out this and more at the 2015 Presidents’ Day open house. Activities will include a mock election, crafts, games, and… celebratory cookies baked by our downtown neighbor Sugar Mama Bakery!
