Celebrate Presidents Day all weekend long! Join us for part or all of the three-day weekend to meet our nation’s most famous presidents and first ladies.

On Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, celebrate Washington’s 286th birthday with George and Martha, portrayed by Living Historians Michael and Maria Grillo! Talk to our first commander-in-chief about his inauguration right here in New-York, ask Martha how she welcomed everyday citizens to the first presidential household, and take a close look at their 18th-century fashion—including General Washington’s military uniform!

Looking for more presidential Living History? On Sunday, February 18, meet First Lady, or  “Presidentress,” Dolley Madison! Come back on Monday, February 19, to welcome our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln!
