Special Celebration and Performances Honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

1/14/15

Bay Area Discovery Museum to host family-friendly celebration with programming focused on the values that Dr. King advocated 

Celebrate diversity and the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the Bay Area Discovery Museum. On Monday, January 19, families are invited to attend a fun celebration including free programming, like a diversity storytime and mural art project, focusing on the values that Dr. King advocated. Children and adults can also enjoy uplifting performances by E. W. Wainwright and the African Roots of Jazz, returning again to the Museum this year to take part in this wonderful event.

Included in the cost of Museum admission, the celebration will take place throughout the day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visitors can enjoy the performances for $5 for members or $7 for non-members. See the schedule of events and purchase tickets at BayKidsMuseum.org/festivals. 

About the Bay Area Discovery Museum

Creative thinking begins early in every child’s life. It enables original thought and the ability to see solutions where others don’t. It unlocks possibilities and fosters innovation. It provides the fundamental building blocks for success in school and beyond.

The Bay Area Discovery Museum is designed to ignite creative thinking in children. The 7.5 acres of natural beauty inspires families to engage in a world of possibilities. Framed by the majestic backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge, the museum is a space for imaginations to run wild. Every curated detail of our exhibits brings creative thinking to life for all stages of childhood. Navigate winding tunnels to develop physical and intellectual risk-taking skills. Feel the rush of cold-water tide pools that surprise and awaken curiosity. Imagine new worlds by transforming into a spider, a ship captain, or a bridge builder. At every turn is a new opportunity to challenge the boundaries of creativity.

Now we are taking these experiences beyond our physical location. We launched the Center for Childhood Creativity in 2011 to pioneer new research, thought-leadership, and teacher training programs that advance creative thinking in all children—extending our impact beyond the Museum.

Our mission: To ignite and advance creative thinking for all children.
