McKinley Day

Celebrate President William McKinley’s birthday on Saturday January 28 at the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum with this fun day filled with activities for the entire family! All of your 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 1:00 and 2:00 PM.  Our Museum Cafe will again serve lunch from 11:00 AM-1:00 PM.  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 a special admission price of $7.  Members are free.
