If you have an altcoin's node software and that software is based off of Bitcoin Core, then you can use the following RPC commands to get information about the genesis block:

getblockhash 0

This will get you the hash of the genesis block. Take that hash and do

getblock <hash>

This will give you all of the information about the genesis block.
