Presidents Day has provided a good opportunity for people to learn about the past presidents.

The Durham Museum is featuring two exhibits about presidents. One is With Malice Toward None: The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Exhibition and the other is School House to White House.

The School House to White House exhibit features the early education of those who grew up to be presidents.

The Abraham Lincoln exhibit features mementos of his life and presidency, such as the Bible used during his inauguration.

Current President Barack Obama also used that Bible during his inauguration, and 8-year old Bethany Krenzer was able to see the Bible, as she is a fan of President Obama.

"He was the first African-American (president) and I think that was pretty cool."

She also learned about President Jimmy Carter, who she is doing a report on in school.

"(I learned) that he was the 39th president of the United States and that his dad died from cancer."

The Abraham Lincoln exhibit is featured until March 20th, while the School House to White House exhibit is featured until March 27th.
