Whether sending valentines or planning a Presidents Day weekend getaway—there is plenty to love about February! Don’t miss our favorite kid-friendly events and activities in Philly this month.

Muggles rejoice! You can finally descend on the Wizarding World at the Franklin Institute when the Harry Potter Exhibition opens its doors. Trade your Quidditch broom for a golf club and tee off with your Valentine at Philly Mini Golf with Love. Celebrate Black History Month at Smith Playground's Leaders and Legends of Philadelphia exhibit, or listen to untold tales of Revolutionary War-era heroes at the Betsy Ross House. On Presidents Day, bring your toughest questions about the nation to a Kids Town Hall at the National Constitution Center.
