Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at the Henry Ford Museum

*The event has already taken place on this date: Mon, 01/18/2021
We’re celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the civil rights leaders who had the extraordinary courage to ask for more from their nation, by offering a free and SAFE day of inspiration at Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation on January 18, 2021. That includes free admission and free parking, activities and dramatic presentations. Sit in the Rosa Parks Bus, and hear the story of Mrs. Parks' courageous act. Participate in and be captivated by the highly praised 30-minute show “Minds on Freedom,” which celebrates the contributions of Dr. King, Mrs. Parks and other civil rights champions such as Fannie Lou Hamer, Gloria Rackley and the Freedom Riders. Sing, carry a protest sign and interact with the performers. You, too, can make history.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email mindy@kidsoutandabout.com so we can update it immediately.

In order to continually prioritize the safety of our guests and staff, admission tickets for Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be offered in very limited quantities.
