Up to 3 kids (under age 18) free with one paid adult admission.

• Sniff out information about presidential campaigns during a News Hound scavenger hunt.
• Register to vote and cast your ballot for president in a kids-only election.
• Meet George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln and listen to their notable speeches.
• Watch award-winning Economist editorial cartoonist Kevin Kallaugher use his drawing and animation skills to draw past and present politicians.
• View artifacts from past presidential elections.
