McKinley Presidential Library & Museum 800 McKinley Monument Dr. NW, Canton, Ohio
Celebrate President William McKinley’s birthday at the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum with this fun day filled with activities for the entire family! All of the favorite McKinley Day activities will be back again this year, including an open hearth cooking demonstration, Civil War re-enactors, and special shows in Discover World. There will be planetarium shows at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. The Museum Cafe will serve lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
A highlight of the festivities is always the moving Wreath Laying Ceremony, where local veterans and a general representing the White House lay wreaths in memory of the president. As the strains of “Taps” echo in the cold winter air, it is a time to remember the life of Canton’s favorite son, William McKinley.
All guests will receive the student ticket price of $7. McKinley members are free.
