Next Monday, January 18th, the first 1,000 visitors to the National Constitution Center can enjoy free admission, in honor of Martin Luther King Day. And that’s not all.

From 10am to 4pm, visitors to the Constitution Center can enjoy a wealth of activities. Live music, dramatic performances, crafts, and more.

Think you can sing? Stop by the Kirby Auditorium and take part in a sing-along concert with Two of a Kind, an award-winning duo who specialize in musical programs for kids. The husband-wife duet will focus on themes related to Martin Luther King, Jr. through song, puppets, and storytelling.

Students from local colleges, Philadelphia actors, and more will take over the auditorium at noon, reading Martin Luther King, Jr’s famous I Have a Dream speech.

And those are just some highlights. A quilting project, a Hands-Across-The-World activity, and more are all part of the day-long celebration. For more information on what’s going on, visit the National Constitution Center’s official website.
