Presidents' Day weekend is a day for celebrating the presidents of the United States, and it's awesome because most kids get the day off from school. Presidents Day for kids can be one of the most exciting (and educational) long weekends of the year if you stay on the lookout for NYC's coolest holiday activities. Don't miss out on Chinese New Year for kids too.

When is Presidents' Day? 

Presidents' Day is Monday, February 20, 2017.

Learn about the Caribbean island’s diverse ecosystem through this bilingual exhibit that introduces its forests, caves, wetlands, and reefs. Live animals, specimens, artifacts, and models of animal species found only in Cuba will be on display in a variety of recreated habitats. And because Cuba is about so much more than fascinating wildlife, the exhibit also dives into the life and culture of the country. Stroll along an open boulevard that’ll plop you right in the middle of a vibrant Cuban street that’s come alive with music, dance, and performances. Learn about the spiritual teachings of Santeria and how to grow Cuba’s most important cash crop tobacco. If you were ever curious about what the island is about, then grab the family for an interactive lesson. You might just be booking a plane ticket right as soon as you arrive home. All ages.
