It’s the annual Children’s Day at the Museum of Florida History! This popular family event offers an array of performers, exhibitors, and history. This year’s theme, “Imagine You Were There” complements the temporary exhibit on display, Imagining La Florida: Ponce de León and the Quest for the Fountain of Youth . More than 30 organizations will be represented, each offering a unique message or display.

Scheduled performers include the African Caribbean Dance Theatre, Young Actors Theatre, Trousdell Gymnastics, and many others. Activities such as face painting, balloon animals, hands-on history, and free bicycle helmets presented by the Pilot Club, ensure a fun-filled day for people of all ages.

Parking and admission are free. Some activities require tickets that can be purchased at the event or in advance at the Museum gift shop. Lunch is available for purchase from The Egg Express Café in the Museum lobby. For more information, call 850.245.6400.
