Things To Do In Chicago With Kids This Weekend, Jan 18th — Jan 21st, 2019 + BONUS MLK Day Activities

Remembering Dr King: 1929-1968

Remembering Dr King: 1929-1968 invites visitors to walk through a winding gallery that features over 25 photographs depicting key moments in Dr King’s work and the Civil Rights movement, with a special focus on his time in Chicago. Chicago, like other U.S. cities, erupted in the wake of King’s assassination on April 4, 1968. While the centre of his activism was focused on dismantling southern Jim Crow, the systems that kept African Americans oppressed in the American South, he spent time in Chicago and often spoke out on the realities of northern discrimination, particularly around the issues of poverty, education, and housing. The event is included in general admission $17 and up.

When: Jan 18 – 21

Where: Chicago History Museum, 1601 North Clark Street, Chicago, Illinois 60614-6038

IMAGINE THE MOON

Adler’s newest sky show, Imagine the Moon, explores how the Moon has inspired human creativity, learning, and exploration ever since we have looked to the sky. Each discovery has brought new opportunities to contemplate and imagine, until, driven by dreams, we left Earth and went there on the amazing journeys that culminated in astronauts walking  on the Moon. People have imagined the Moon as a glowing disk in the sky, a destination in space, and a world that shares its origin with the Earth. The power of human imagination continues to inspire our relationship with the Moon as our partner in space and companion in our sky. General admission begins at $8 and up.

When: Jan 18 – 21

Where. Adler Planetarium, 1300 S Lake Shore Dr, Chicago, IL 60605
