Extended hours, free programming with general admission, and a school supply drive are in store for visitors to the National Constitution Center over Thanksgiving weekend, Friday, November 24, through Sunday, November 26. The National Constitution Center will host a variety of family-friendly programs and activities, including arts and crafts, games, and interactive shows. Featured activities include corn husk doll crafts, exhibit tours, and a Thanksgiving Day Show.
Plus, starting Friday, November 24, and continuing through Martin Luther King, Jr, Day on January 15, 2018 the National Constitution Center invites visitors to “give thanks” by donating school supplies such as pens, pencils, crayons, copy paper, and folders for Philadelphia schools students. Visitors making a school supply donation will receive $2 off admission. Donations can be dropped off at the Center’s box office. The donations mark the Center’s participation in #GivingTuesday and supplies donated will become part of the Center’s activities marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service on January 15, 2017.
Admission during Thanksgiving weekend includes access to the National Constitution Center’s interactive main exhibit, the signature multimedia, theatrical performance of Freedom Rising presented in the Sidney Kimmel Theater, and the iconic Signers’ Hall.
