From 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. guests can create July 4th inspired crafts. At 1 p.m. the Museum will celebrate America’s birthday with guests over birthday cake and ice cream on the Plaza. Then, at 2 p.m. guests are encouraged to gather with noisemakers, flags and tons of enthusiasm to parade around the Museum. The parade will be complete with lots of noise for the grand finale with bubble wrap “fireworks” as the kids “pop” hundreds of the plastic bubbles. Uncle Sam will be in attendance to read the Declaration of Independence as children learn the meaning behind Independence Day.
Red, White and Blue Days activities are included in paid admission to the Museum. Free admission will be granted on July 4th to all active duty military families when military ID is presented (limit 2 adults and 2 children).
