10 Best Presidential Sites for Kids!

Today Travel named us one of the 10 Best Presidential Sites for Kids! Click here to read the whole list.

We're definitely unique in the world of presidential sites. We're the only one that has a science center, planetarium, and a local history component. It all works together, because we're preserving the history of "a community that created a president."

Plus, McKinley was very interested in science. He was killed at the Pan-American Exposition, where he was visiting to learn about the latest technological advances of his time. Our science exhibits and programming in Discover World dovetails beautifully with his interest in science and education.

We're a "one-stop shop" for field trips, because our educational programs meet social studies AND science standards. So teachers love to come here to achieve multiple objectives!
