Looking for the best things to do in Philly this MLK Jr. weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your schedule.

Philadelphia celebrates the life of Martin Luther King Jr. with opportunities around the region to honor his legacy and give back to our communities. Several museums are holding three days' worth of programs, including the African American Museum in Philadelphia and the Museum of the American Revolution, both offering virtual and in-person ways to engage. At Rothman Orthopaedics Ice Rink, kids can don a cape and skate with their favorite superheroes. Philly gets a double dose of dinos this weekend, as both the Dino & Dragon Stroll and Jurassic Quest come roaring through, not to be outdone by the Reptile Super Expo slithering in on Saturday.
