PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If you’ve ever wanted to know which U.S. President had a pet turkey, or which one was never married while in office – stop by the National Constitution Center this weekend.

The National Constitution Center celebrates President’s Weekend at the museum through Monday.

“We have crafts, we have two stage shows looking at First Ladies and also how Presidents grew up and my favorite is our Presidential Trivia Game like jeopardy, where you can test your knowledge on presidential history,” says public programs demonstrator Matt Riffe.

He says there are plenty of facts to be learned about this country’s highest elected officials.

“Abraham Lincoln had a turkey named Jack and that actually became the first presidential turkey that was pardoned and started the tradition there. My favorite is Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was elected to four terms as president of the United States, something that has never happened before and probably never will because we have the 22nd amendment, which states that a President can only be elected to two terms.”
